3dprintingforum.com launches a forum dedicated exclusively to the topic of 3d printing. The 3d printing forum will serve as a facilitator for individuals to get together online and discuss 3d printing and 3d printers. The aim is to create the leading community related to 3d printing.
3d printing has existed since the 1980s and has been actively used in the rapid prototyping industry, but the main development for smaller-scale 3d printers with potential uses in the home has occurred in recent years. These recent developments have widened the interest in the 3d printing technology to outside of the rapid prototyping industry and garnered great curiosity in the 3d printing technology from the populace in general.
“The interest in 3d printing has built up a momentum due to the impressive work of home-based makers tinkering with this technology and this development could be paralleled to the first stages of the home computer revolution. The timing is therefore absolutely perfect for the 3d printing forum to gather this growing interest in the topic,” explains 3dprintingforum.com founder Jonas Duxen.
The 3d printing forum will help users to find the latest news for 3d printing and discuss it with likeminded individuals, find and upload 3d prints, discuss and compare the 3d printers on the market, where to buy filament, what 3d printing means for the economy and much more.
The founder wishes to share his knowledge gained from comprehensively following the industry as well as his practical experience in construction related to 3d printers.
“I know from experience that it could be quite challenging to build a 3d printer, but it is very rewarding and I wish for this community to help others gain a deeper understanding of the 3d printer market and possibly help in an eventual decision of upgrading their homes with a 3d printer,” says Jonas Duxen.
3d printing is an innovative technology which in the near future could contribute towards an increase in domestic jobs by increasing domestic manufacturing. The technology additionally holds the promise of being able to help families in their daily lives by allowing households to print specific items in their homes, whenever they need them.
“3d printing is nothing short of a revolution in terms of manufacturing and a breakthrough just as important as to when Henry Ford first invented the assembly line technique for mass-production. I intend the forum to help people understand and discuss what this revolution in manufacturing really means,” adds Jonas Duxen.
3dprintingforum.com welcomes anyone to join the forum with an interest in discussing the latest developments of the 3d printing revolution and how it is changing the world.
