very interesting. would love to see more econometrics on this topic. (1) 3dp will become economically viable in niches first — which ones exactly? a top 10 list would be great. (2) how will the geographical patterns of 3dp employment look like? how will it change “cityscapes”?
reg “common language”: have a look at the 3mf consortium. biggest roadblock to a rapid 3dp employment is a cumbersome workflow. we need to fix this first.
another concern: legal framework. questions on product liability and ip protection will be key.
