Generation C to Generation 3D

CNET has got a great article talking about the future of 3D printing.

Key points:
1) 3D orinting is the fastest growth part of the rapid prototyping field.
2) Lack of manufacturing in America will fuel the drive toward 3D printing at home.
3) Make it yourself (MIY) is a key trend in culture

Glen Emerson Morris on consumer market 3D printing:
It will likely have an impact on society, politics, and business as great or greater than the Internet. So, fasten your seatbelts. This is going to be a really wild ride.

Cosmic Modelz

The companies are starting to line up.

Cosmic Modelz is setting up a site for kids to create their own 3d models. They're site currently says "Coming Soon." Cosmic Modelz states they will be using a Z Corporation printer. I think 2008 will be a great year for Z Corp.
