Not until the quality is such that they don’t look like they have been made by sticking sand together with PVA.
I suspect that the ASDA quality will be similar to WSF from Shapeways, which is the aforementioned sand and PVA quality.

People always talk about how the latest £500 printer is amazing, but you have to ask, why do then companies that use rapid prototyping as their business pay over £70,000 for a machine if a £500 is as good.
I think the answer is that the £500 is not as good.
And having used the £70,000 machines, they are not as smooth as a traditional green stuff model either.

Maybe in 50 years it will be.
