A team of engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are tackling the speed issue. They’ve designed a new 3-D printer that can operate up to 10 times faster than a traditional printer.

Three-dimensional printing was supposed to be the next big thing, but a combination of factors have kept it from becoming a mainstream technology. One of the ongoing issues is that 3-D printing is slow, and most of the technological improvements have been
