The Manufacturing Revolution Visualized

By on September 19th, 2010 in Event, Ideas, video


There’s a great animation made specifically for the FULL PRINT3D exhibition by DHUB that visualizes what we think might happen in the future when 3D printing becomes widespread. Two images in the animation resonate strongly with us: 
  • The scene of billions of mass-manufactured cups representing what must be behind virtually every object we possess today. We will never look at any common object in the same way again
  • The futuristic vision of what might be, where virtually anything can be replicated
One comment: why would these capabilities be available only at a service depot? Why couldn’t we have such devices at home?

Kerry Stevenson, aka "General Fabb" has written over 8,000 stories on 3D printing at Fabbaloo since he launched the venture in 2007, with an intention to promote and grow the incredible technology of 3D printing across the world. So far, it seems to be working!
