Does 3D Printing Have a Future for Consumers?

Diann Labrien | June 18, 2016

Last Christmas, there were a number of 3D printing kits for kids that were popular gift purchases. Using a “blueprint” and different colors of plastic blocks, kids could print replicas of the Eiffel Tower or the U.S. Capitol. And of course they could order more blueprints and plastic for future “projects,” perhaps related to school assignments. As yet, however, widespread consumer use of 3D printing has not taken off. Does this mean that it is just a “fad” that will soon die out? Most predictors in the 3D printing niche say “no.”
