Since I didn't have much time to paint this week (I am trying to finish a US Rifle Platoon and one small terrain piece), while googling around the web, I found information regarding 3D Printing.
I am sure that most of you are aware of this technology, since it firstly appeared some 7-8 years ago, but, since it's not very widespread in terms of availability (due to the high costs of acquiring a 3D printer... almost USD 15.000 / printer), I wanted to share my thoughts with you and ask you whether you think that this could be the future for our hobby (everything has to do with our hobby...other opinions are banned from this blog! :-) ).
I reckon that most of the big companies of the industry might be already using this type of machinery for their products, but the question that is swirling in my mind is whether an individual could buy sth like that and create his works for his leisure (personal use or whatever) or start a new business by producing pieces for entering the market (even though the possibility of balancing costs - profits could take a little while...in human years)!!!
What do you think?
