Yesterday I found this video that captures the core of why we are so excited about 3D printing and the potential it has to benefit our economy and community in so many ways. If you watch this and cannot find a grain of excitement I suggest you check a pulse.
I agree that art leads the way when it comes to imagining what is possible and what could be. 3DP seems to be similar as many of the traditional manufacturing thought has a difficult time understanding the value from their frame of reference. Artists: please lead on.
