@eldridge: Very true, it all depends on what sort of a volume you want and on what mode you want

@Rich - you make a goood point - one of the benefits of 3D printing is that one can evaluate design improvements more quickly and easily than with previous technologies.

If 3D printers were supplied with a brochure that guides users to make something (much like microwave ovens come with what-you-can-cook-with-this-microwave-oven) then that would be helpful because most of us don't know how to handle a 3D printer and what to make out of it.

Almost one out of three households have this kind of a 3D printer then this could become the new manufacturing trend. For example, a company may be marketing and increasing business by investing in human resources. For example, if a company makes a product which has some add-ons, then the company can supply the materials to the common crowd and tell them to do-it-yourself, which will save the company the manufacturing money, as well as generate enough interest on 3D printing in the common crowd.

"yes. It's rather like paper printing. Just about all of us own a printer that can print in both b/w and color now, but we still will hire professional printers for business cards, books, magazines, etc. "

Ariella, thanks for the clarification.

Nevermind 3D, look at what you can do with a small 2D laser cutter:
