      Maybe quite soon, though there are some differences of opinion about this.

      Some people think that they will become so affordable, and so easy to use, that everyone will have one, whilst others think that only enthusiasts will have them but everyone else will have access to them through print shops that will specialise in 3D printing whatever you want.

      My own opinion is that if you look at how 2D printers developed so quickly from the early dot matrix printers I think we’ll all have one in our home in the next 10 years.
