In recent months, I've seen more libraries K12sposting RFP's for 3D printers, in fact the last library I came across was getting their 3rd 3D printer! For those of us that make our living on selling hardware, it's pretty obvious that more and more 3D printers are being placed in Libraries, Colleges, Universities, and K12s across the country.

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 be a

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
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, butright 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 aprosthesis specifically designed for children. Children grow and therefore quickly outgrow their artificial limbs. This 3D printer
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

on the amount of color in the printed document. Prints with very little color (like an email with a single small hyper link or logo) cost less than prints that have full color. Kyocera has made this available to dealers for about three years now and I’m pretty surprised that only about 40% of them are using it. It’s funny because if I was still a sales rep I would be chomping at the bit to go out there and show customers how I could absolutely save them money just by buying from me. However, the

Japanese electronics giant Sharp may be struggling, but the banks will keep the heavily indebted firm on life support, analysts say.

Sharp's financial issues are slightly greater than even a $100 million, however. The company owes around 700 billion
