The 3-D printing revolution becomes practical

While we are unlikely to see a 3-D printer in every home anytime soon, 3D printing is moving beyond the hype and into the realm of reality.

More exhibitors, new printers and exciting applications at CES prove consumer 3D printing is moving beyond the hype. We will — indeed, we must — still pass through the “Trough of Disillusionment” and it remains to be seen just how wide that trough will be. However, the nature of the exhibits, hardware and software at the Consumer Electronics Show last week demonstrate that 3D printer technology providers — hardware and software and materials — are aware of just how important it is to market viable consumer offerings.
