In this reflection, we discuss some thoughts on the usefulness of 3-D printing as a tool for bridging the different perspectives on product design offered by both artistic and technical approaches. This bridging could be very useful, as it would allow the bridging of the two approaches using a sort of “common” language; both methodologies could be used better in parallel to produce the best possible product design, one which considers both qualitative and quantitative product/design value better than either the artistic or technical approach could alone.
