This article written for investment blog Seeking Alpha was created by an investor with no ties to the 3D printing industry. The claims are his opinion, and will need to be corroborated by other more reliable sources. The article speaks of possible developments in the manufacturing industry through 3D printing, and the author raises some good arguments. Advancement into the manufacturing industry will be a significant step for 3D printing. I will include this in my essay, but first I need to find more evidence to back this up.

Ryan Murphy's curator insight, March 21, 2013 9:36 PM

3D printing is one of the newest frontiers for Engineering and Information Technologies in the future.  It is a relatively old technology, having existed for 30 years already, however recently, with the decrease in hardware size and needs 3D printing has caught many peoples eyes.

 

I think that in the current growth market of Information Technology, 3D Printing could be one of the next big growth markets, especially when you consider its ability to create extremely small and technically advanced pieces of machinery, like say, Computer Components?

Great examples of how 3D Printing can be used to benefit humanity. The creation of food and organs is already becoming a reality!

Brandon Smart's curator insight, March 20, 2013 6:48 AM

PBS presents this video with the help of numerous personalities throughout the technological world, such as writers for popular technology magazines such as Wired. This video presents more basic information on 3D Printing, but expands on this by giving examples of how it can benefit individual fields. Of particular interest is the segment presented by Joseph Flaherty on 3D Printing in Medicine. This is an excellent example of how in the future, this technology will be used to benefit humanity. This will be very useful in my paper. The people involved in this video conclude that 3D Printing will be massive in the near future, and I need to find more sources to corroborate their views.
