How one student turned over £867,000 selling Raspberry Pi cases

Stashed in: 3D Printers

The first prototype case was 3D-printed on a friend's £300 hand-built desktop 3D printer.

Despite recognising the obvious demand for Raspberry Pi Computers, Marsh didn't fully appreciate the demand for such a simple idea like a case. "I thought we're going to sell 20," he remembers. "In the first two days […] we had 300 pre-orders."

3D printing is definitely a miracle of modern technology, but what it definitely isn't is a tool for mass-producing anything. Marsh was out of his depth.

I wonder if that will change as 3-d printing matures.
