Is it too early to declare 2014 the year of 3D content creation? We don't think so. In 2014, we'll see the increasing convergence of two of the most powerful phenomena in tech today - 3D printing and the consumerization of IT. While the first 3D printers to hit the market required some serious four-figure cash investments, the technology has improved to the point at which many 3D printers are available for small businesses and even the home. At the same time, we're immersed in another golden age of community innovation - the sense that anyone can take advantage of emerging technologies to make things is palpable from the Silicon Valley to the Research Triangle, and all points in between.
