Experts call 3D printing 'Third Industrial Revolution'
08
Mar '13
In the late 1800’s England introduced the textile industry that changed the way fabric and clothing was made. Then in the early 1900’s Henry Ford introduced Mass Production, where the same objects could be reproduced quickly.

Today we enter a new Era. The Era of Individualization, where once again consumers can choose color, texture, and design to match their individual tastes and preferences. When they are ready they just hit “make” instead of “print” and they can produce their own products.

The sector was worth 1.7 Billion in 2011, but is growing rapidly. According to Rueters.com (March 6, 2013) 3D Printing has been a game changer in the manufacturing of medical devices, but the real revolution is still to come. 3D Printing removes the limitations of the traditional manufacturing process. “You are almost unlimited as to the geometric complexity,” said Terry Wohlers, an independent analyst who advises companies in the 3D printing sector.

“We are truly excited, the 3D Industry is still in its infancy, additive manufacturing can change economies, many products that we import today, will soon be available for printing from our homes,” said, Massive Dynamics President Oscar Hines.

Massive Dynamics new 3D printing division will compete with industry pioneers such as 3D Systems Corporation, Stratasys, Ltd., and new market entrant The ExOne Company.
