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.
