3D Printers Now As Cheap as Laser Printers Were In 1985

Check out this perception altering post on the Ponoko blog. It really puts the current state of 3D printers in context: they’re now cheaper than laser printers were in 1985. It almost dares you to think of when you first saw a laser printer, and when your company first got one, and when you first owned one, and …. The implicit trajectory is irresistible. Open questions: how will the natures of design, commerce, distribution, manufacturing, and recycling cope with widespread mass distributed manufacturing?
