Yes , i understand what you mean. Sometimes innovations do need some push to gather momentum and there is nothing better than support from NASA.

3D printing already is taking off in so many ways, that I imagine NASA will just give it more of a boost(er). Sorry, I couldn't resist the pun opportunities! :)

Yes Elizabeth, you are spot on with the observation that NASA's investment in it will set a good precedent.

Exactly, vimalkumarp, and NASA's investment in it will set a good precedent and hopefully inspire the commercial sector.

Your point that NASA has had a hand in developing a lot of technologies that benefit the world, not just the space agency is spot on. I am sure 3D printing has a bright future..

Indeed, vimalkumarp, NASA has had a hand in developing a lot of technologies that benefit the world, not just the space agency. With NASA innovating this way it makes sense that commercial technology will follow suit. This really holds a lot of promise for the rapid evolution of 3D printing, I think.

it is incredible that a rocket engine was fabricated this way.  the most important point that i feel is that if you analyse the technology evolution, space technology has always been a pioneer. So any advancement in space will cause ripples in other domain and this is good for having solutions that will enhance quality of life. Thanks a lot Cabe for the blog.

@Shehan: Indeed and that shows the development of the technology itself. The technology has come a long way and the signs of improvement are visible now.

Yes, Elizabeth. My Montana kitchen imitates a time when someone just mixed a bunch of blue minerals (chromium ?) to get a color to add to the whitewash/lime. But, yes we have gone beyond Pantone color match at the hardware store to get to other world / artificial reality.  I like your comment because it is close to home.

XYZ, Rabbit, and Disney innovate on the 3d printer in different ways -- from price point to using materials such as yarn.
MIT students modified a 3D printer to enable it to print more than one object and print on top of existing printed objects. All of this was made possible by modifying a Solidoodle with a height measuring laser.
Siemens released Intosite, a cloud-based, location-aware SaaS app that lets users navigate a virtual production facility in much of the same fashion as traversing through Google Earth. Users can access PLM, IT, and other pertinent information for specific points on a factory floor or at an outdoor location.
New software from Carnegie Mellon allows 2D objects -- digital photos, old photos, and even paintings -- to be manipulated in 3D using models found online.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
