A new year with new technology

365 days ago people weren't talking about 3D printing. Now people are trying to shoot it down because it's not the technology everyone hoped it would be. Well excuuuuuuse me princess.

Actually, it's rather encouraging to see this sort of counter argument presented. The expectations of 3D printing has had a certain amount of inflation associated with it. I suppose we can blame star trek for that. An now that it's here folks need a little talking down. We're not recombining hydrogen to make food yet. We're just melting plastic filament in layers. Sure there are things it's not good at yet, but the things it can do are AMAZING. And we're finding new things it can do every day. 3D printing can't do everything, but there's no end of the things it can do.

And I can't wait to see what we come up with in the next 365 days.
