I think that 3D printing is only just getting started and there are getting more and more examples of higher volume, repetitive manufacturing examples available. I agree that it has been overhyped, but in less time than you suggest, it will be more commonplace in different industries. Specifically the advances in human biology are very interesting and will have a huge impact in the medical arena.   Thanks for you comment and hope that the blog was useful.

I have always wondered to what extent can 3D printing go? Can it really print larger jobs that can benefit mankind and be a breakthrough in the construction and development industry? I guess it has been overhyped and today, all that we are seeing are small objects that have otherwise been produced with a minimal cost. It might take several more years to come before we can finally say that 3D printing has changed our lives in one way or another.
