Hey Art, We just got a desktop 3D Printer in our showroom. I expect it will do great at getting IT folks in for demos. The technology really is cool! But that's about it. From what I've seen, 3D printers have 0 practicality in an office or business environment. Perhaps the occasional school will purchase one. A lot of dealerships sell telecom services on top of copiers. It's a very similar industry: - 5 year contracts - upfront hardware revenue that can be purchased or leased - reoccurring...

Czech Thanx for the response, 3D printing is here to stay. However, it's not about now, it's about positioning your dealership as a technology leader and innovator. 3D printing sales will grow. I look at the 3D industry and am comparing it to the copier industry in the early 70's.

Personally, I think you're right on with your ideas about 3D. I don't know if it will ever have the acceptance copiers had in their heyday, but right now, it's a product looking for a market. I saw something intersting on TV involving a 3D printing application. The company (which was not involved in any medical field) found it could use it's 3D printer to produce a prosthesis specifically designed for children. Children grow and therefore quickly outgrow their artificial limbs. This 3D...

Rogue: Thanx for the response! Time will tell, and over time they will get faster and additional materials will come to market for building all types of items. Take the copier industry and what if you had a 3D printer that could print on demand 25% of your parts. Reduce back orders, cut inventory, enhance the customer experience. It's just a matter of time

Re: 3D Printers & Copy Machines "is there a common thread"?

Old Glory ·
I know your comparison is very conceptual but there really is less commonality than you think. In the beginning copiers needed nothing but an original needing copied and the copier could fill the need. No variance in throughput, no variance in input. With 3D you have a variance in throughput that spans a very large Gamut from plastics to polymers to metals and unlike a copier, the hardware for each is radically different. Then you have the input. You can have a need and a printer and still...
