The End of the 'Made-In-China' Era

I was passed along this link from a reader that asked my thoughts on this.

Say Goodbye to 'Made-In-China'

And say hello to the invention that's launching a 21st-century industrial revolution right here in America -- generating serious wealth for well-positioned investors.

Dear Fellow Investor,

The Air Force already bought one. So did Rolls Royce, Black & Decker, and Chipotle. Jay Leno has one in his garage (but it's not a car). And now that the sticker price has plummeted from $100,000 to $1,299, it won't be long before everyone buys one.

Business Insider says it's "the next trillion dollar industry." The Economist has gone even further, comparing its potential impact to the steam engine and the printing press.

Too good to be true? Wall Street thinks so. Meanwhile, the guys who brought you the iPod and Amazon.com are true believers -- and they're getting ready for their next big score. You still have time to join them, if you act fast...

The opportunity to profit from a transformative technology like this comes along once in a lifetime. Technology experts say it could be "bigger than the internet."

That's why The Motley Fool has JUST RELEASED this stunning new video -- to help individual investors like you jump on the 3 stocks that get you the biggest piece of the action. Because when the skeptics wise up, the big money will already be off the table.

Click here to see the impossible (but real) technology that could make you impossibly rich.

Its getting cheaper same reason anything gets cheaper. Look at PC's.

Rapid proto work is getting better as its is cheaper than alternatives. In the past whole molds would have to be made or someone would have to machine a part out just to hold it. Now print it. Depending on the resolution you want, and how long you want it to last will determine how long to print and how much it will cost.

Hell I can build a 3D printer if I wanted to. There are many open source projects, the best at the moment is the RepRap project. http://www.reprap.org/wiki/RepRap

There are guys selling table top kits for $550 http://www.indiegogo.com/eMAKER-Huxley-3D-printer-kits

Get into commercial stuff like Zcorp printers use newer tech to build stuff quicker and stronger. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQHnMj6dxj4

Want something in metal? http://youtu.be/i6Px6RSL9Ac using a sintered metal process much like how heatpipes in CPU coolers are made.

Japanese company Fasotec will make a miniature 3D replica of your fetus and hand it off to you in a lovely jewelry box for about $1,280.
