No, but you STILL cannot buy a computer for the same price scale as the first Apple, Commodore, etc.. I'm not saying they are going to continue to go up. I'm saying they're going to stick around 2-3 grand, and stay there for the models which world relatively well.
You will find cheap ones that work crappy, don't print very accurate things, and gum up a whole lot. We've been working with these printers for years now. The cheap '3d printer in every home!' don't work for crap for anything you'd have an every day practical use for. The reason why they went up in price is, it's just not feasible to make them that cheaply. For example, your never going to get a cheap linear Z axis, because the precision required is, by definition, expensive to make. And they always have been. Combine that with 4 additional axis. This isn't just an inkjet printer, it has 6 axis to deal with an coordinate. X, Y, Z, Temp, and Feedrate.
Right now, your printing out shower hooks. If your engineering, you can print out small pieces which look like what you want to make. As a matter of fact, one of the BEST uses is to print it, and then use it to mold something which can actually MAKE your real part cheaply.
I'm not saying manufacturing won't evolve. But, in my opinion, it will NEVER evolve to be 'the replicator'. Things get cheaper as you manufacture them in mass. Even if you had a printer which was manufactured in mass, it's output wouldn't be, and thus, it's overall cost of operation is still going to be dramatically greater then someone making it. The assembly line took over manufacturing for a reason. A Carpenter could make you anything, but industry can make you millions of anything.
