I think that the thing that will make 3D printing indispensable is not here yet, so people speculate about dishwasher parts, toys, etc.At one time, experts said that nobody would need a computer in their homes; those were only for labs and universities. They said we'd never need Internet in our homes; what would we do with it when we could get things like weather and news from the TV? They said nobody would want a tablet interface on a computer; how would people type with no keyboard?This time around, investors are thinking that there will be a use that creates demand for 3D Printers in the home eventually, even though we can't imagine exactly what it is yet. Yes, DDD (and the whole industry) is somewhat of a risky investment in that regard, but DDD appears to be the best-positioned company for the home market in the industry if that indispensable home consumer use does come along.
