3D printing technology has been developed to give shape to anything that a human mind can imagine. All it takes is just the right material. 3D Printing or additive manufacturing, that needs digital files of the objects to create the lighter versions of them in reality by laying down layers after layers of a particular material, has already invaded the industrial space, and is soon to enter the domestic realm. The material that this technology uses is usually thermoplastic, which melts when heated and solidifies when cooled, but other materials like chocolate and glass are also being used by experts to make the applications of it wider.

3D printing is used to manufacture molds for making jewelry, and even the jewelry itself. 3D printing is becoming popular in the customizable gifts industry, with products such as personalized models of art and dolls, in many shapes: in metal or plastic, or as consumable art, such as 3D printed chocolate.
