And I guess the price issue is all relative. 3D printers that cost anywhere from $1,500 to $5,000 are considered cheap by traditional standards, but that's still a hefty cost for hobbyists and home-based innovators and even for smaller engineering shops.

I feel you are correct. It would be very helpful to many users if prices are in the more reasonable range. Clearly there are serious benefits. Lets wait and see.

I think you're going to see a lot more activity on both the software and hardware front in terms of advancing 3D printing capabilities and making them more accessible. Now that the costs have come down on the hardware, and the noise level is reaching a pitch in terms of what's possible, vendors from all sides seem to be all over the category and really pushing some pretty unique innovations.

Super interesting. For some time we had problems explaining the operation of some mechanical structures until we did a dynamic 3D in ACAD, however it required someone to spend some valuable time and learn how to do it. It is not easy.

I looks that this new idea may make these presentations simpler to make.

Great, thanks.
