3D Printing in the News

"3D printing could well rewrite the rules of manufacturing in much the same way as the PC trashed the traditional world of computing" -- The Economist

"3D Printing helps you make the product from the core up so you have less waste...The tool is cheaper, the time is faster. If all thought 3D printing could do was shoes, I wouldn't be talking about it." -- Jeffrey Immelt, CEO, General Electric

Press Coverage of the Spring Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo (New York)

"After years of being lumped in with other maker-oriented technologies, 3D printing finally has its own professional conference, the Inside 3D Printing event in New York." -- CNET

"For two days, New York became the center of the 3D-printing world, with some of the industry's leading companies gathering at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center..." -- Mashable

"One thing that impressed me was how well the crowd mixed—it included plenty of people who were completely new, lots of people from the “desktop” 3d printing world, and plenty of people from medical and aerospace, whose printers cost several times more than most of us make in a year." -- Make

"There’s an excitement in the room at the Inside 3D Printing conference today, probably best characterized by the concept that something created today, by someone at this show, could become as transformative as the iPhone in a few years." -- On 3D Printing

"The Inside 3D Printing keynote this morning was a state-of-the-industry address from Terry Wohlers of Wohlers Associates...the definitive independent resource for gauging the state of business and technology in the 3D printing field." -- Adafruit

"Seeing an audience of 1,000+ is a speaker’s dream come true. That’s what I saw when walking onto the stage early Tuesday morning. The attendees were a mix of NY investors, analysts, startup companies, and corporations of all types." -- Wohlers Talk
