Printing shoes article

I think this is a point that needs to be made.  Theoretically anything can and will be printed... probably the first thing to be printed will be a better printer.... the question will be ... is it good enough to get stuff done.

I think the technology availible for 3d print heads is at the primeval stage.  Until there is some better way to deposit materials with a higher precision and the ability of the printer to self-check and correct errors, it will always be a crappy "blind-write" exercise.  One mistake and the end product is crap... no restart... no interuptions. Kind of like a modern washing robot that doesnt allow the wash cycle to be interupted because it can't detect its own internal state...

A robot without senses is a dumb beast.
