I find that quote rather amusing, it is from two years after the first flight at Kitty Hawk. People keep saying that 3-D printing is for prototyping and will never be used for mass production. General Electric is producing 25,000 of the parts displayed below using additive manufacturing. It turns out that it is easier and cheaper to print them out, then it is to weld 20 small parts together.
