Kind of surprised they jumped on this bandwagon so quickly.
3D printing has been around for a long time but it's finally starting to reach the point that it can be applied to commercial applications for everyday users and not just hobbyists and prototypers.
NASA for example has already started making rocket engine parts with 3D printers that can be made a lot faster and in a single piece, instead of complex multiple components, that's a lot cheaper to make and still is a high quality part.
We may be only a year or two away from everyday consumers from being able to order certain products and have it made right at home.
So, I wouldn't say they jumped on the bandwagon so quick but more just in time to help grease the wheels of progress and help accelerate this trend.
