There are many lessons in this example of the 2D digital printing revolution. The 2D digital revolution resonates with criticisms of 3DP today, which lacks speed, refinement, and economies of scale in comparison to factorymade products delivered via global supply chains. So then a revolution proceeded full-tilt at the end of the nineteenth century with the mechanization of resource extraction, commodity production, and agriculture alongside the spread of information en masse. This was documented by many pioneering social scientists at the time: Auguste Comte, Emile Durkheim, Karl Marx, Max Weber, and Georg Simmel to name a handful.
