I want to know what the feasibility of something like this might look like. I know materials are getting better, and the cost of 3D printers are decreasing while resolution and quality are increasing.
My vision would be something like this:
- We wouldn't keep any furniture in-house except for demos
- You would place your orders, and you would be able to watch in real time your furniture getting printed. (Think of it being like watching your car going through a car wash)
- The price of the piece would be determined by the detail, quality of material, and expected lifetime.
- You would be able to return the furniture for a discount and to be recycled into your next piece.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Insights on why this may or may not work?
