Comment on How Many People Will Own 3D Printers? by Dale Dougherty

User Rating: / 0
Ross, I didn't draw a distinction between buying an assembled 3D printer or a kit. You're still buying a 3D printer. Even those "making" their own 3D printer are probably buying a kit rather than building them from scratch. It's certainly difficult to get numbers for those who might order all the parts themselves and build their own machine. Still, I wouldn't expect the growth in the number of 3D printers to come from home-built versions. MakerBot, as the market leader, has moved from selling kits to finished products. I hope that the market for kit models will hold up.
