Some people are already dismissing consumer 3D printing as a passing fad. They may prove to be right. But one area where 3D printing is surging ahead, though still far from mature, is industrial manufacturing systems. As printing, or additive manufacturing systems become increasingly automated, robotized, and new technologies get developed, we will see large-scale disruption to traditional manufacturing and logistics businesses. And we will also see entirely novel products and things emerging, as we envisioned in this MindBullet about printing large structures in space. One of the hot new technologies is NanoParticle Jetting – printing liquid metal. I’m not entirely sure how it works, but the prospects are fantastic.
