With our increasingly technological world, we have made countless advances to daily life.. including in the print industry with 3D printing. So many new technological advances raise the question… what will the world be like in the future? Could 3D printing have a larger impact on the economy than the internet did?
Looking back to the late 1990s when the Internet first began, it would have been hard to imagine the impact it would have and what advances it would make for our society. One computer used to be the size of a whole room; now it fits in your hand and people carry it around everywhere. New technologies such as 3D printing are comparable to the start of the internet. Its impact on our future is completely unknown, and the possibilities could be limitless. Granted, it will take time for 3D printing to become “the new internet,” but we are in the midst of exponential growth within the industry. Only time will tell.
