3D Printing Is Here

It was only a few years ago that you couldn’t touch a 3D printer for less then $10,000 and even $20,000 - $30,000 was the norm. 

Well, as Singularity has taught has, the exponential curve has come to 3D printers and you can now get a MakerBot 3D printer

Add some affordable supplies, (filament), and blueprints, (many available for free at Thingiverse.com ), and you’re off and running. The learning curve is quick and the products you can make, invent, sell and/or enjoy are endless. Make your own records, strainers, toys, tools, prototypes, inventions, replacement parts; the list goes on and on.

It will not be long before we are ordering everyday household items only to receive the digital file in your email and print it at home on your 3D printer. Not only will you super-customize your order, from colors, to size, to fit, but you will go from ordering it, to having it in hand,  all within hours. And if it breaks? Print a new one! You may even end up ordering and printing your own car, plane, bike or boat!

Super printers have already “printed” a complete house and now MX3D has married a multi-axis architect feature together with a “steel-weave” 3D printer that is about to “draw-print-and construct” a compImage titlelete bridge over an actual canal in Amsterdam.

The ultimate creation? A 3D printer that can replicate itself, making them virtually free...and proving Ray Kurzweil right!
