If you want to create something, you need to prototype the product, and doing this is not cheap. However, technology changed the way prototyping can be done, right on your table, and for (almost) one-tenth of the cost. 3D printing makes prototyping easy, quick and cheap. Using a 3D printer, you can now experiment with stuff you dream about. Create a hair-line stick or as huge as a spaceship part, 3D printers can do it all. It is one of the most affordable ways of building things right at home.

To make things interesting, a man recently 3D-printed the world smallest power drill. 3D Print reported that Lance Abernethy, ordinary man from Auckland, New Zealand, who works as a maintenance engineer, fixing machinery in a factory, has built the smallest 3D-printed working drill machine. The drill was printed on his 3D printer and measures just 17mm tall and 7.5mm wide. It is built using a miniature motor, a tiny button and a hearing aid battery. The printed the case using Autocad software with the reference design scaled down from the original.

It took him three hours to solder the parts, squeeze the entire contents into the case and create the mini model. The drill can make holes into soft objects. Lance is not heading to create an even smaller drill as a record. Check out the video of the working mini drill in action.
