Rapid 3D printer prototyping
I loved the quote about what 6 year olds expect, can we read into that a little and recognize that they weren't talking about 6 year olds? I wonder what the end result with a printer like this will be, will it mean more prototypes are created because it is "easier" to produce them now? If only three or four versions were prototyped in the past because the process was longer and more complex does this mean that 6 year olds will have a dozen prototypes to consider now? From the prototyping I see the benefits of the color range, the media range and not having to assemble anything but could this run fast enough to print complete pieces for sale that have the same challenges of color and mixed media or are conventional production methods still the choice at that point?
