3D printing will revolutionize the world. What does it mean for FedEx, UPS and USPS? How much more productive will society become? Will we ever go to stores again or will we become a community of hermits quietly printing parts in our basements?
All good questions because new inventions like the MarkForged Mark One will quickly force society to answer them. This new 3D printer can print carbon fiber, fiberglass, nylon and PLA (a thermoplastic) materials. That means printing everything from car parts to phone cases to really strong, but uncomfortable, condoms. The only limit is your imagination.
The machine itself looks straight out of the future. An aluminum body, a translucent printing bed, stunning to look out and (hopefully) amazing to use as well. Pre-orders start now at $5,000 with shipments going out later this year.
