We know that 3D Printing has really gone mainstream when technology product giants like Hewlett Packard enter the market. Today at RAPID, the Society of Manufacturing Engineer’s annual rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing conference, HP Inc….
General Electric has announced that it plans to use additive manufacturing in a production setting for a part used in the new LEAP engine. Increased 3D Printer speeds and innovative 3D Printing configurations are pushing…
3D Printing is being called the next industrial revolution. But for those of us who work in manufacturing it has been hard to see how the technology could compete with the speed and quality produced…
It would be dangerous to assume that China (or other countries) do not understand 3D printing technology and its potential benefits simply because China’s market for 3D printing has not developed in the same way as the West.
Living in America you can’t help but feel that we’re right smack in the center of the new Additive Manufacturing revolution. Are we…still?
Nike is going just prototyping, and has moved into using 3D printing as part of the manufacturing process itself in printing a football shoe.
Don’t think that America will necessarily retain the lead in 3D printer technology in the future. China will have something to say about that.
Futurist Christopher Barnatt presents a fantastic video of the present and future of 3D printing, including how it may transform how we buy shoes!
