3D Printing gone mainstream

Ever seen the commercial spot of Pearl for their mass-market oriented 3D printer? The moderators state seriously that everyone can easily print whatever needed in almost no time. If the handle of a coffee pot falls off while the coffee is already running through the machine or a heel of your pumps got lost – no problem anymore because the replacement part can easily be produced by anyone right away now.

I just try to visualize the face of an average noob trying to operate a CAD program in an attempt to quickly construct such an object :eek:.

    Not mainstream yet, but certainly getting there. When you can go out to a bar with 10 friends and bring up 3D Printing and be able to have an intelligent conversation with at least 7 of them about it then it will be mainstream. Give it another 24-36 months in my opinion. It's getting there!
