How Will 3DP Affect Your City?

An interesting piece in the Houston Business Journal written by Molly Ryan contemplates the effect of 3D printing on the city of Houston’s manufacturing sector. 
 
Her investigation showed what most non-technical folks soon discover about 3D printing: you can make almost anything, but it will be more expensive than traditional manufacturing techniques. In other words, it’s best for prototypes, one-of’s, personalized items and very short run production pieces. 
 
Not news to us or Fabbaloo readers, but it does beg the question: What existing or new businesses can leverage the ability to produce customized objects at a higher cost than mass produced items? We think people in every city will be soon developing their own answers to that question.
