For the last year or two, many people in the domain industry have dismissed “3D” domains because they misunderstood, or were uneducated, about the scope of power that 3D applications deliver.
In the most recent disturbing news regarding 3D, there have been over 100,000 downloads of the blueprint on how to make a gun using a basic 3D printer (less than $1000). This scary but amazing utility (3D printer) opens up the wild world of anything being able to be created using them. There have been car models, buildings, appliances, and objects of any kind around you, being “cloned” from a 3D printer. The extent of 3D printing is probably the most serious concern right now in Homeland Secuurity.
While we do NOT support using 3D technology to create weapons or anything harmful to humans, the fact remains that 3D printers are the new appliance beyond any other creation utility in history, and their importance in the growth of technology, human interactive creations, and industrial/consumer uses is infinite. Re-read the word “infinite”.
When you can re-create anything in 3D for under $1000, this is beyond the scope of the industrial age and mass production. Now, one person, sitting in their kitchen, can make a copy, in full three dimensional form, anything they want. We’ll be waiting for that day when some guy re-creates a living statue of his wife/girlfriend.
We’re waiting for the blueprints on a Porsche 930, or any Porsche for that matter. Serious and important, 3D printing is a reality, and now we have to look at it as society and government looked at the discovery of atomic energy.
3D printing, and all the correlating products and services applied to that ability, are huge domain opportunities with unimaginable value at this time. Stay tuned, subscribe to our newsletter, and give your comments on this phenomenon.
