Will 3D printers turn all of us into micro-producers?

A breakthrough has been achieved in 3D printing technology with the printing—for lack of a better word—of high strength ceramic components, which overcome traditional manufacture limitations. And in Italy, a machine has been invented that prints chocolate, in bars and all shapes that your creativity and software allows. Will 3D printers will move us a step closer towards further self-sufficiency, by turning all of us into micro-producers? In the same way that Gutenberg’s movable type printing was a technological revolution that paved the way for ideological ones, this seemingly humble technological advance may have the potential for a revolution in the modern economy.
