Exploring a still-raging trend, the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) has organized the just-opened exhibition “Designers, Makers, Users: 3D Printing the Future.”

Through images, video, objects and interactive elements, the show explores projects, large and small, in which 3D printing technology is being used in innovative ways, including in space exploration, creation of architectural forms, even in prosthetic design. The exhibit, in which displays will include a Zero-G Printer that traveled to the International Space Station in 2014, addresses questions being raised by these technological advances.

Through Jan. 10. Noon-6 p.m. Sundays and Tuesdays-Fridays (until 8 p.m. Thursdays), 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays. $10; $8 seniors, military and educators; $5 ages 6-17 and college students. 1315 Peachtree St., Atlanta. 404-979-6455, www.museumofdesign.org.
