The 3D printer was initially developed in 1983 to allow engineers to prototype ideas before moving into the next stages of production. Today the 3D printing industry is a multi-million-dollar industry with marketing focused on small businesses, STEM education, and the public. Over the past thirty years, 3D printers have become highly affordable, and with continual growing popularity, are a common addition to libraries, classrooms, office spaces, and households. Recently, the scientific community has shifted its focus from the applications of 3D printing technology to nano-aerosol emissions produced during the printing process.
