3D Printing Is The New Hot Thing, At Least Its Peaked Chris Dixon's Interests
Chris Dixon is being interviewed on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt by Eric Eldon and one of the things they are discussing is 3D printing. Andreessen Horowitz (where Dixon is a VC) recently invested in Shapeways a 3D printing company. He also is apparently personally invested in MakerBot, another 3D printer maker.
“I can see us making multiple investments,” said Chris Dixon in regards to 3D printing companies. Dixon went onto say he would be interested in investing in ways to make it easier to create items with 3D printers. Similar to how the Internet allowed people to lower the cost of publishing, Dixon believes 3D printing will lower the costs of manufacturing. He believes it could even bring manufacturing back to the U.S.
