Shapeways is still a bit of a lesser-known company, but they’re really paving the way in terms of bringing 3D printing technology to the general public. I predict that within 10 years every household will have a 3D printer, and people will be paying for CAD designs rather than physical products. The market for 3D designs is going to be huge, and Shapeways already has their foot firmly planted in the door.
Now is definitely the right time to be studying CAD and 3D design.
