3D Printing for All?
Mark Marich
3/4/2013
Blog Resource
Summary:

In the mid-1980s, a series of technological advances gave birth to desktop publishing (do you remember Aldus Pagemaker?) and made it possible for individuals and small organizations to self-publish—at a fraction of the cost it would have through commercial printing. Fast forward about 25 years and we could be looking at the same thing happening to 3D printing. An 83-year old inventor has created an extruder that converts plastic resin pellets into filament for use in low-cost 3D printers—and he is practically giving it away.
