3D printing is changing the world – from printing guns and human organs, to dismantling the world’s industrial infrastructure by enabling home manufacturing. It’s “the next Industrial Revolution.” For the first time in history, the stories of the human beings building an industry have been filmed. The result: PRINT THE LEGEND, which follows the people racing to bring 3D printing to your desktop and into your life. For the winners, there are fortunes – and history – to be made. PRINT THE LEGEND is both the definitive 3D Printing Documentary – capturing a tech in the midst of its “Macintosh Moment” – and a compelling tale about what it takes to live the American Dream in any field.
