3D PRINTING IS THE PRECURSOR OF THE NEW INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION?

June 3, 2013

Imagine that you could build tools, spare parts, items of almost any kind, even foodstuff following your own desires and designs, the possibilities are countless.  In fact, it could be the precursor of a new industrial revolution: 3D printing.  What used to stuff for fantasy is now real and the possibilities are truly mind-boggling.

    Could be, but I saw 3d printing in action. It can use only plastic, right now only one kind of plastic. Wish it can use metal so that I can build the parts I designed.

    For now, the possibility is very very remote. Yes, you can build a replica, in plastic, or as shown in Jacky Chan’s movie CZ12, in stone. But modern undustry uses different materials even for a single part. Maybe in making toys, 3d printing will suffice, but for now, or in the near future, I don’t see any possibility. Just wishful thinking and a goal for our best and brilliant technologists, engineers and scientists.
