In the near future, food, electrically conductive materials and composites stronger than steel will be able to be printed out in layers, allowing just about anyone anywhere to make a variety of products, ranging from hearing aids and electronic components to a beef tenderloin, medium-rare. A lot of this will be possible thanks to Stratasys, an Eden Prairie company with more than 1,800 employees, considered to be the market leader in 3-D printing.
