Summary:
"Big Bang Disruptors" can virtually devastate a business overnight through faster, cheaper and superior technology and that is exactly what 3D printers are doing, says Larry Downes, author of "Big Bang Disruption". As evidenced by the showing at this year's CES the price of 3D printers is coming down and the performance is going up. And for those wondering how to judge whether a company is a Big Bang Disruptor, Downes says look no further than Amazon due to its culture of innovation and undermining its own success.

'3D Heights' Offers First Corner Store Approach to 3D Printing

TheStreet (June 25, 2014) — 3D printing can sound, well, complex. Even if you have something you'd like to print, where should you go to get it modeled? And if you'd like to buy a 3D printer, who can you talk to about your options? 3D Heights, a new 3D printing store in Washington Heights, aims to make 3D printing easy. The store sells 3D printers and offers customizable printing, as well as education and training services. It sells all brands, making it one of the few unbiased 3D printing stores in New York. 3D Heights CEO Jerry Castanos says that as 3D printing becomes more accessible, use of the technology will skyrocket. His goal? To be the catalyst of this transition. Castanos says 3D printing will be making a boom soon as business owners and school principals starting using the technology. For investors, this means they should be paying attention to 3D printing. Video provided by TheStreet
