Other than a R & D staff, engineering, and industrial design team, who is going to have a real need for one of these? Correct me if I'm wrong, but they use a resin or a plastic material, right? They're not really meant to create structural functional parts. In other words, I'm not going to whip up metallic parts for my car's engine for heavy duty loads, heat, wear and tear. The parts from 3D printers are meant for show and display only, not to replace functional metal, cast, extrusions, etc.. For those, I can get a guy in China to make them for 90 cents an hour....just my 2 cents.
