Re: Business use?
Hi Chris,


Great thought - there are actually some manufacturers serving the IT industry that are able to use lower-end 3D printers for value-add products. I spoke recently with a company that makes custom rack server fixtures. This type of thinking (identifying areas where additive processes can add value) is what it's going to take for 3D printing to really grow.

Business use?
It'll be interesting to see if IT organizations use these kind of printers and software for experimenting with business applications of 3D printing, in innovation groups and skunk works mode.
