While most consumers are waiting for desktop 3D printers to become their personal Star Trek replicators, the real magic in the 3D printing world is happening in the industrial space, according to Carl Bass, CEO of Autodesk, who gave the keynote address Friday morning at the Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo in New York City. "I think industrial 3D printing is extremely important," Bass said. "We have way overvalued consumer 3D printing and truly underappreciated the value of industrial 3D printing.

" This is specifically important to the manufacturing industry, which he said will be transformed by 3D printing.
