Should we be more interested in 3D cutting over 3D printing?

Should we be more interested in 3D cutting over 3D printing? Or are they really just two sides of the same (or at least similar) coin

Excuse my bias to 3D Printing, but while 3D cutting will coincide, I view 3DP as greater acceptance and implementation vs 3DC. ‘Cutting’ is very much viewed as a “shop” tool, while 3DP is a far more appealing tech, to the masses. The environment is such that “regular” people view “Printing” as something they have been doing for 30+ yrs vs “cutting”. Admittedly, I’m not nearly as informed on CNC but introducing 3DP in “traditional” shops for RP, 1 off’s, etc it relieves a tooling machine for what it was initially designed for, production. I am in the “Copier” world and THAT is the present “next distribution channel” in the US. (That is how I got my taste and addiction to learning more about 3DP). Perception/client marketing, going door to door:
Cutting = Machinist/Specialist Trade/Shop
Printing = “just take a CAD drawing and click, print”…much like the toner/ink printer on your desk o.O

@Rick_Rivera Good points. I think for me at the moment the quality of product from an average 3DP machine isn’t there yet, but I’m sure it won’t take long (hello @Formlabs ). But I ultimately think it will come down to what product you want at the end of the day. Smaller items, more complex shapes totally worth 3DP. But I think for the most part, the majority of stuff people want to make are much more suited to 3DC from a structural and cost point of view - hence why major manufacturers are already 100% in love with it. But those type of machines are never going to be in peoples homes like 3DP ultimately will, like you say.
