One of the more common questions I hear, from those just beginning to find an interest in the 3D printing space, goes something like this: "When will we be able (RT @nayampally_arm: 3D Printing is all charged up!
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Reflecting the first Industrial Revolution and its impact, Herbert argues that 3D Printing will have a greater impact.
