3D Printing


Reinventing Manufacturing

Developed in the late 1980s[1], 3D printing uses a digital design to manufacture solid objects, by laying down successive layers of material. A variety of raw materials including plastic, ceramic, glass and precious metals are being used in the printing and prototyping process, making inroads in a number of industries including confectionery, automotive, aerospace & defense, education and healthcare. Touted as the Third Industrial Revolution[2], 3D printing technology could turn the manufacturing world upside down, blurring the boundaries between product design, modeling and manufacturing. 3D printing has gained rapid adoption in prototyping across industries, helping companies increase customization, reduce waste, minimize costs and shrink time to market. In fact, the industry has seen increased M&A activity in 2013, with Stratasys and 3D systems acquiring smaller players.[3] See more
