I agree, Elizabeth, 3D printing is going primetime. It seems to be doing so in a number of industries simultaneously.

True Rob it's nice to hear that the Elizabeth is a surfer, Elizabeth why don't you share some photos.
Elizabeth I have heard something call personalize Surf boards, is it true? If so there is a great advantage of 3D printing surf boards.

Shehan, I do believe that it is an art, that is where the real value is, isn't it Elizabeth?

@a.saji – I feel 3D printing is a different angle of thinking; I would love to see how 3D printing happens and the final product. I am sure it would be around us very soon, couple of months most probably.

@a.saji – I think nothings impossible when you have 3D printer at home. You could easily create any object you want in minutes, isn't that amazing. Remember the traditional dot matrix printers, who would have thought there would be a time when we could create and object physically.

@Rob – 3D printing is really useful for all the industries we touch, the greatest benefit is for the manufacturing industry. It's a new way of thinking and of doing things.

@notarboca – I am sure being a surfer you would love to easily customize your surf board with a 3D printer. Not sure how hard is this material compared to the original surfboard.

@PubuduR – Personalized surf boards, what more could you expect. I think now you don't need any engraving to create your own customized product. Do you know that there is a scanner to replicate the products?

Elizabeth, I feel that 3D will be more feasible for the samples, models etc.................. when it goes to the mass production molding kind of things will be more cost effective. Please correct me if I am wrong.
