WINNING THE WAR ON WAGES:

Louisville factory: 100 printers, 3 employees (Parija Kavilanz , 5/05/15, CNNMoney)

3D printing still a novelty? One startup wants to bring the tech phenomenon into large-scale manufacturing.

On Monday, CloudDDM unveiled a 3D printing factory embedded in the heart of UPS' worldwide hub in Louisville, Ky.

The first-of-its kind, fully-automated facility will be able to use the tie-in to UPS to ship its products quickly.

"We'll have 100 high-tech 3D printers running 24 hours, 7 days a week," said CloudDDM's founder Mitch Free. And it'll need just three employees: one for each of the eight-hour shifts.
