    Good post Rachel,

    If additive manufacturing is used as a poster child for bringing back local manufacturing to any part of the world that has to be seen as a very good thing. Better still if it’s used to promote design and innovation with world-changing products.

    The politicians probable expect this ‘technology magic’ can be cranked up like an Apple product, they may well quickly forget, especially when it’s obviously not moving fast enough to be used time and time again as the main reason for economic growth and achievement.

    Medical and fashion will probably now drive consumer awareness of 3D printing faster than anything else we have seen in the last 30 years of this ‘new’ technology :)

    Good piece, Rachel! You already know how I feel about NAMII and the direction this “revolution” is going to head in :(
