You can't 3d print a heritage repair or renovation so you'll be OK what with being a heritage plasterer. (y)

Also, when you consider that there are around 15 million houses in the UK built before the mid-sixties I reckon there'll be enough to keep the domestics going for a bit. There'll just be fewer and fewer people able to work on them.
I'm buying a 3D printer and becoming a builder :LOL:(y):envidioso:descansando:

@Vincey has just sold a kidney and ordered one.
@Lodan has said that he can do and overcome anything and is making his own printer out of sticky backed plastic, pipe cleaners and empty loo roll tubes.
