自從第一批3D打印機進入市場以來，一直存在著一個主要的爭論，那就是這種新興技術將如何改變現有的業務，並很快給他們留下深刻的印象(LIPSON, 2013)。這是對企業所有者的一個重大威脅，需要討論，為了生存，他們必須採取一些措施。有人說，當虛擬化和移動性影響到獨立系統時，3D打印可能會以某種方式影響供應鍊和物理產品。 3D打印可以完全重新定義企業的運作方式，以及一些能夠影響行業的事情對其他人來說可能是一個更大的改變(BAK, 2003)。 3D打印目前是一個正在成長的領域，它並沒有真正佔領某一個行業或領域。總之，它影響到所有形式的技術，全球政策的製定也將受到嚴格對待。
A major debate that had been going on since the first few 3D printers entered the market, was that how this emerging technology would bring a change to the existing businesses and impresses them soon (LIPSON, 2013). This is a major threat to business holders that needs to be discussed and some steps have to be taken by them in order to survive. Some say that 3D printing could affect supply chains and physical goods in a way when virtualization and mobility did to standalone systems. 3D printing can totally redefine how businesses work and how some things that can affect the industry might be a bigger change to somebody else (BAK, 2003). 3D printing is a growing field right now and it does not actually take over a certain industry or field. In all, it affects all the forms of technology and the global policy making would undergo an intense treatment too.
The legal challenges involved in any business, along with its need to stay afloat are important and with 3D printing in the market, the labour cost would be affected in a significant way. Outsourcing will be done on a much global scale and timeliness would be the only remaining factor that would ignite completion among potential buyers and sellers. This does not mean that with the changing times, the companies should fight this new invention, rather they should accept it and make way accordingly, it would be a much better option that can ease the path in this direction. The companies can incorporate 3D printing techniques into their exiting frameworks (LIPSON, 2013). By being the first one to do something in this league, one can turn it into a major step. A company can make more money by investing some in this kind of technology. The products need to be more customers oriented and tangible in order for the clients to accept them. This makes it much easier for everybody involved in the process to grow.
