Comment on How Many People Will Own 3D Printers? by Julia - Aberrant Crochet

User Rating: / 0
I don't know. I think of 3D printers as a tool. Kind of like a, engraver or a book binding machine or automatic stapler (though 3D printers are much cooler). They will be as common in households, businesses and schools as they are needed. How many people use an automatic stapler at home? How many use the one available at work or the FedEx store? I see the future of 3D printers more along those lines. Specialty equipment that some people will want in their home and others will want to pay for the use of through a business or use through a school for education. Until 3D printers are able to be used to make copies of something we need and consume every day, there's no reason for it to be in every household. Until then it belongs to the realm of specialty equipment.
