Nowadays, there is no doubt that the technology is growing rapidly and bringing a lot to manufacturing process and medicine. However, predictions about having at least one 3D printer in every household are still far away from the truth. One of the main reasons 3D printers will hardly become as popular as ordinary printers in the next few years is a large variety of companies that create 3D printers.
I am not against competition and believe it to be very good for the entire industry but if someone who is not very familiar with all the terminology (such as “extruders”, “heating bed”, “nozzle”, and etc.) decides to buy a 3D printer, this person will be lost and after 5-10 minutes of reading endless reviews will simply close the browser and return to watching TV or – that much better – reading a book.
