With 3D printing technology continues to mature, the cost has been effectively controlled, cost reduction means that the expansion of the audience, the further expansion of its market.

(vs those 1 way pulpits) Forbes article about how HP may find some "Blue Ocean" in the 3D printer/design market. Ironically the cartridges and printers themselves could be made by the 3D's layering-slow but steady. Printer making printers. (the human organ part is scary). http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevefaktor/2012/10/15/how-hp-could-reinvent-3d-printing-and-itself/ As Jeremy Rifkin has pointed out we are moving to a distributed, localized "sharing" ecomomy and crowdsourcing is going to be a big part of that new "re-distribution" of the earths limited "natural resources" and unlimited "intellectual resources". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Rifkin regards, Stuart Armstrong, Canada Nice to see some comments and true “bi-lateral” blog from CEO.

Innovation cannot be stopped, and it shouldn't when used right. Yes, I agree. Innovation cannot be stopped, and it shouldn’t when used right.

Breaking 100 patents or copyrights a day might become a de facto standard. The world is moving way faster than the bureaucrats. I see potential in 3D printers.. I see democratization and open competition moving into manufacturing - an industry once reserved to big large scale companies. I see amazon offering JIT manufacturing similar to printing books. I see manufacturing clouds where you can order 10 pieces today and 100000 tomorrow.

Now we need a VisiCalc for 3D printers - a killer app that made home computers useful. 3D printers are now affordable.
