3d Printing Disruptor Or Distraction?
Many technologies are put forward as disruptive. But what does that really mean and does 3d Printing fit into the category of being a truly disruptive innovation or technology? I have flip flopped from one side to the other a few times myself. So first things first, what defines a disruptive technology?
A disruptive technology is one that changes the rules. It basically supplants many technologies that was there before with its own DNA. It up ends markets and traditional beneficiaries of whole industries. Hence the term disruptive.
