Dr Jon Harrop and Rachel Gordon, analysts at IDTechEx, explain how unique software developed by IDTechEx shows the range of performance of different 3D printing technologies from 208 3D printer suppliers. This identifies unmet needs/gaps in the 3D printer market, by technology type and other parameters. There is also huge innovation in materials used for 3D printing – and still big needs. IDTechEx have also found that 3D printer projects on Kickstarter have raised almost $20million to date. Learn more at www.idtechex.com.
IDTechEx brings the business and technology communities on key future technologies together at the Santa Clara Convention Center, in California. Their event is focused on some of the most important and most exciting emerging technologies of the future with focus on 3D Printing, Internet of Things, Printed Electronics, Wearable Technologies, Graphene and Supercapacitors. To attract at least 2,500 attendees and more than 200 exhibitors. Hear from the IDTechEx team a day before the conference kicks off.

3D Printing is being hyped by some bloggers as possibly enabling some type of peer-to-peer device printing revolution. I'm not totally sure about that. But as all the worlds consumer electronics and pretty much everything that we use in our lives most likely has been 3D printed while the industrial designers, architects and all creative creators think up, design, improve upon all the devices that we use. Upcoming new more affordable 3D Printers such as Cubify's $1299 Cube 3D printer, printing in PLA or ABS plastics, allows more people to take part in the process of thinking up, 3D printing all types of mockup, molds, 3D print basic forms that possibly also can be used in certain basic circumstance.
