Hmmm. Willard Foxton in the Daily Telegraph says, “Stop talking rubbish about 3D printing“.
Willard’s article is a useful reality check on the hype surrounding 3D, otherwise known as additive manufacturing. While his useful dose of realism is valuable, I remain convinced that 3D printing is a hugely valuable breakthrough. It’s one about which we should educate our young people, so that we produce a new crop of talented engineers who can take this technology forward, and make effective use of it.
Just because there are wholly valid cautionary tales about 3D printing, we shouldn’t neglect to be part of its development.
