    Once the domain of huge corporations

    Hi,

    The phrase below seems me incomplete, does it make any sense?


    Once the domain of huge, multi-national corporations due to the scale and economics of owning a 3D printer, smaller (less capable) 3D printers can now be acquired for under $1000

    It's OK- you can now buy cheaper 3D printers than before, though they are not as advanced as the ones that only multinationals could afford in the past.

    Re: Once the domain of huge corporations

    The sentence is certainly incomplete.

    It lacks a comma after 'corporations' and a full stop at the end.

    I disagree about the comma after corporations. The "due to" part should not be set apart from the opening. It was the economics of owning them that previously allowed only the big guys to have them.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
