The author, through the book’s title, rightly pointed out that 3D printing is the next technology goldrush. Chris Anderson, the author and entrepreneur who insightfully forecasted the emergence of the long tail and freemium business models, has predicted that 3D printing has given rise to the next industrial revolution. It is indeed a hot topic in the technology sector. More and more enterprises and individuals have bet on 3D printing taking off.
This book shed light on both the business and technological aspects. It tells you what are the highly demanded products, how to outsource and expand your business. It also discusses in detail different types of 3D printing machines, software platform and what basic equipment you’ve got to have to start a business. The author shared lots of his personal experiences with the printing machines. These are interesting stories to read. There is a balance between plain technical details and readability. I don’t think it is a “business in a box” type of guide that enables you to start the printing business tomorrow, but you can expect to read some in-depth details that save you time on doing the research all by yourself.
If you want to catch up with the 3D printing trend, this is a book to include in your reading list.
