not so sure that HP is going to crack this market...not that they can't, but there are several companies such as Stratasys and DDD that have a huge headstart in both consumer, medical and industrial 3D printing...now if HP were to purchase one of these 2 major players then they would have some of the existing technology and patents...
No matter what happens in the next few years with HP or others, I fully believe that 3D printing otherwise known as additive manufacturing will be a disruptive force in many different fields.
