Presentation Summary

Cheap thermoplastic extruder 3D printers are most common 3D printers globally. Simple structure, low cost printing materials and freely available designs makes the printers desirable for hobbyists and prototype builders. There is a good chance that thermoplastic extruder printers are the next "Every household printer". Due the nature of 3D printers, custom design is possible for every part printed, but when the parts are printed for some certain device, production is truly scaled globally and produced in masses: one design and multiple production sites.
