Recent years have seen extraordinary growth in the amount of legal scholarship and legal practice at the intersection of law and 3D printing. To help navigate this emerging field of 3D printing law, I created the accompanying Law and 3D Printing Bibliography. The published bibliography presented herein contains over 100 entries. The brief introductory comments to the published piece discuss the creation and contents of the bibliography, and provide suggestions for where one should begin their research in the area. The comments focus on (1) 3D printing’s background, (2) historical growth pattern of law and 3D printing scholarship, (3) identification of law and 3D printing scholarship, (4) closing thoughts on the future of law and 3D printing scholarship. Appendix A provides a list of recommended starting places with publications and selected court cases through 2015.
