Blog Resource

3/4/2013
Blog Resource
Summary:

In the mid-1980s, a series of technological advances gave birth to desktop publishing (do you remember Aldus Pagemaker?) and made it possible for individuals and small organizations to self-publish—at a fraction of the cost it would have through commercial printing. Fast forward about 25 years and we could be looking at the same thing happening to 3D printing.
