3D Printing

March 25, 2016

Hey there!

Just got back from the Rep Rap Festival after hanging out with a bunch of 3D Printing geeks (in Goshen, Indiana). Fun times.

In today's digest, I would like to pose a question: What industries or jobs would be affected by the mass adoption of 3D Printing?

If you have a good answer, I'd love to hear it! Just hit reply to this email.

Here's what I am thinking: Truck drivers are a huge part of our economy - after all, how would you buy and sell goods without the help of truck drivers to transport your stuff?

What would happen to truck drivers when people start 3D Printing their own goods? 

Something to ponder about...
