The problem i see with 3d printing is that 99% of what is in the shop is useless. It's just toys and trinkets because that is the only size that can be printed at and justify any sort of markup. I'm not going to sell a coffee mug that takes $100 to produce at an additional markup. I can't see anyone actually paying for these "coffee mugs" you see in the shops given the actual scale is so tiny. The idea of making something like a genuine mug of coffee comes with an absurd price. The most basic mug that I have in my office without a handle: a simple ring with walls of 5mm to be safe and dimensions of 100mmx100mmx100mm This comes out to $58. That is without any artistic additions. Once I add decorative substance or design to it - 100+? Printing that size in plastic - $200 Is this really the materials fee or is the absurd price being tacked on for some guy to dust it off? I'm not looking for large scale manufacturing but is 3D printing intended to be limited to miniature items that are limited to being tiny or functionally useless trinkets or am I hoping to find the fools of the internet?
