Advancements in 3D Printing Too Slow

Technological advancements are happening right under our noses. Perhaps those advancements are progressing a little slower than expected. “It’s now almost 20% of the way through the 21st century and where are the flying cars?” It is true…flying cars are not on the market just yet, but people are working on them! Are advancements in 3D Printing too slow? Here are the industries that 3D printing is enabling to transform technology as we know it.

Flying Cars

They may not exist yet, but they’re in the works. Imagine the growth opportunity this would open for companies like Uber and Airbus.


The aerospace industry has latched firmly on 3D printing technology, for example, there are many 3D printed parts in aircraft and we can expect this to increase.


Some of SpaceX’s rocket engines are 3D printed. Exciting advancements in 3D printing have opened a discussion around human colonization on mars.

Technological advancements that were envisioned for the 21st century will be possible because of additive manufacturing. It may be occurring a little slower that expected, but that does not mean it isn’t happening as we speak. Are advancements in 3D printing too slow, or are we impatient?
