The maker culture is a contemporary culture emphasizing learning-through-doing in a social environment. According to Industry Analyst Jeremiah Owyang, “maker movement puts power in the hands of the people to fund, design, prototype, produce, manufacture, distribute, market and sell their own goods”. This new trendy movement impacts global manufacturing as creation shifts ge graphically to local, philosophically to sustainability and legally to force the adaptation of new IP laws as people move from consuming to creating and sharing (Owyang, 2014). Sharing Economy impacts core business models and higher education (HE) must be ready to address the change by developing relevant competencies of graduates in order to secure innovation and growth. 3D printing is not only the main technology for prototyping, but also hyped as the technology to bring about the next industrial revolution. The overall market for 3D printing products and services which hit $2.2 billion in 2012 and was forecasted to grow to $4B in 2025 (IDTechEx, March 2014), actually hit $5.1 billion already in 2016.
