This is where the skills and their abilities are being tested. it really shows how knowledgable FAE guys are on their subject matters.

@Greg: Retailers using these 3D printing machines to customize products makes sense. This can be useful. I had originally thought you meant 3D printing being used on the consumer end.

There is so much of information on web, most FAE are unable to grasp most of it. It is you who have to do all hard work. When I talk to FAE or technical sales engineer, many time they are not aware of many information.

@Rich: Try Altera, TI, Silicon Lab, Linear Technology, AVX etc. They are pretty good and provide all information.

This blog highlights how 3D machines could impact the retail world http://www.mytmc.com/Blog/post/2012/06/21/Hot-Off-the-Press.aspx. Retail stores are full of product that is low cost high margin items. What if retailers had machines and could customize certain products for their customers at their stores? These machines could also decrease product development and manufacturing time which could allow for new products in retail stores in a quicker time frame.

@Rich,

"Ordering is fast. Answers aren't." 

Are you saying that most companies are quick to take client's money without providing the necessary information that is needed to facilitate transactions?

" I'm often surprised by the number of times I see too little data displayed"

@Rich: I think that's done to make only the relevant information available to the customers and make it simpler. Too much information often complicates things.

@Greg: How do you think 3D Printing would have an impact on E-commerce? It's not like manufacturers would sell things online which the consumers will be able to download and print on their own without the need of physical delivery. I don't see how 3D printing will have an impact on E-commerce.

I am little surpised. For example, Digikey has all datasheets attached. It is so quick. If you need more details for design, switch to vendor website, and you find link to all catalogues realted to this part. All this takes few minutes. You do not have to wait for snail mail for days or for weeks. Also, FAE are also pretty quick to reply and visit you. I love this model for its alacrity. As regarding sample, you can order them online too, and if you give fed-ex,UPS account number, they are with you next day.
