Comment 3D printing requires more parts. (Score 1) 179

When hundreds of medical devices are available for 3D printing, then remote areas with a 3D printer will have access to what they need, when they need it.
If only a few parts are available, purchasing and maintaining a 3D printer is a waste. Until more things are available to print, mass produced parts will be cheaper and probably much better.
