3D printing has been around for some time, but has perhaps not been quite as revolutionary as we might have expected when it first emerged.

Office equipment can be a big outgoing for some companies, particularly if they have employees with very specific requests, such as an ergonomic chair.
However, things like pens or coffee cups, even custom mice and keyboards, could be created with a 3D printer, cutting out the amount of equipment left to sit for years in a cupboard.
When workers are done with their devices they can return them to a recycling area where the material can be broken down and used to create other equipment.
