Brandon Smart's curator insight, March 21, 2013 12:18 AM

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?
