Introduction to 3D Printing by Greg Emerson

It's not often that a revolution comes along to change everything, but like the Internet changed the way we communicate and share information, 3D printing will fundamentally change the way we make things.

And instead of just padding the bank accounts of huge corporations and their shareholders (which it will do as well), the people set to benefit the most are consumers, small businesses and communities that will now be able to make and customize just about anything imaginable for local markets.
