    The technology colloquial known as ‘3D printing’ has developed in such diversity in printing technologies and application fields that meanwhile it seems anything is possible. However, clearly the ideal 3D Printer, with high resolution, multi-material capability, fast printing, etc. is yet to be developed. Nevertheless, one can al- ready start to wonder what possibilities for electrical engineering applications will become available in the near future. Here I try to give a brief and balanced overview of current developments and a few examples of the first small steps towards 3D printed transducers.
