This Changes Everything
“3D printing is an exponential technology,” says Avi Reichental, president and CEO of 3D Systems. “It is becoming faster, cheaper and easier to use at an exponential rate. From the home, to the school, to the office, to the kitchen, this technology is going to change everything; from how we design, to how we make, how we learn, how we live, how we eat, how we stay healthy, how we share. Everything.” The light-filled lobby of 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) could be the lobby of any large company, except for the display of objects. To the left is a fancifully intricate guitar, a teapot, a woman’s shoe and beautifully detailed dollhouse furniture. To the right is a delicate scoliosis brace, a helicopter part and farther back, a car engine block casting pattern. All of the items were created on a 3D Systems’ 3D printer.
