In the days of COVID-19 and everything else that’s going on, technology has never served a more important role. Remember when movies were popular with robots and we thought that would never come to fruition? Well, fantasy is increasingly becoming a reality in different capacities and 3D printing is a great example of this.

What we noticed when perusing the 2020 notables is that there’s a common theme of beautiful architecture and landscapes. Like we said, never has there been such an optimal moment to focus on inspiration and planning versus execution, so articles like this and the information shared are a great place to start.
