@Greg – Is there any particular reason why you say 3D printing is cost efficient for some products?

@Debera – 3D printing has brought in a new way of designing and developing component for all industries. I am sure it's at an affordable rate.

@Debera – What about the material used? Does it match he contents of the same material they want to use when manufacturing?

Chuck, I was one of those people asking why I needed a computer to store recipes. Storing recipes was the killer app PC makers were marketing to consumers in the early 80s via TV and magazine ads, when there were about 20 different models with 20 different OS. They gave no other possible reason for owning one. Of course, the whole thing sounded absurd. That was a long time before Apple or Intel Inside and the rise of consumer-oriented marketing in Silly Valley.

What turned my head was word processing. For a writer/journalist, word processing was gold.

I wonder if the same principle of low-volume manufacturing could be applied to the medical field as well by storing, say, printed skin for emergency burn victims.

Many people thought the personal computer was a gimmick, Rob. I remember people saying, "I don't need a computer to store recipes." For some reason, people talked a lot about recipe storage in those early years.

Yes, Debora, it has become widespread. At first I thought it was a gimmicky tool with limited potential. But then, I remember thinking the same thing about the personal computer.

That makes a lot of sense, Gary. The 3D printer endlessly customizes.

As advancement is going on in 3D Printing technology accuracy has  improved and size of printed objects  has also increased .With this advancement now air plane parts , aerodynamic car bodies  are being 3D printed . But one should remember that it is not only used to recreat the objects but it can also be used to creat new and different objects which never created .
