Fashion and 3D Printing

Much of the hard work in fashion happens behind the scenes. Designers produce intricate samples to show buyers long before new items appear in retail outlets. Because of manufacturing constraints, items are often one of a kind or designed for the mass market, with few options for short runs of a specific piece.

On December 21, 2016, a bipartisan U.S. Senate Committee gave pharmaceutical companies a smackdown. In a report issued after a year-long investigation into skyrocketing drug prices, lawmakers used words like “predatory” and “immoral” to describe the pricing structure of drugs whose patents had long expired, and were once affordable parts of patient therapy.

In August 2014 Coolest Cooler raised $13 million on Kickstarter, making it the second-most successful campaign in the crowdfunding site’s history. But more than two years later, only about one-third of the product’s backers had received the product, and the Oregon Department of Justice was investigating the Portland company after hundreds of consumer complaints.
