    Until we see cheap consumer-grade 3D printers, we wont see a 3D printing revolution. Maybe when HP enters the market in the summer, we will see the beginning of the 3D printing revolution.

    They need to find something really useful for printing, not some dumb toys and trinkets that are usually shown off for the public. In other words, 3D printers need to show in which areas they are indispensable. Otherwise, like the saying goes, just because we can do something, doesn't mean that we should.

    Paul Sr of OCC uses a 3D printer to make parts on bikes. The most recent, a dragons head.

    Been there, done that, 3D printing is already here.

    Now if you want to talk about lower prices, that will help make it mainstream.

    3D printing is still way too gaudy and crude. The hype for what one can do, in a useful way, is way exaggerated.
    This area still needs an evolution as well as price reduction.
