That's according to their CEO, Scott Crump, who in a recent blog post described the moment when HP announced it entered the 3D printer market - using machines made by Stratasys. Crump:
It’s a sweet feeling to see Stratasys reach this point. I’ve envisioned an event like this for more than 20 years.By expanding into 3D printing, HP is taking an historic step. It’s the only paper printer manufacturer that competes in the 3D printer market space.We still have a ways to go, but 3D printing is on its way to becoming mainstream.
We think so too. But this is a fabulous first step.
