3D printing has been around for 30 years. It is now being applied in and disrupting many different industries. Parts and products that were once never conceivable, previously, are now possible. As innovators shift their mindset and accept that additive manufacturing is now a legitimate and cost-effective method of manufacturing, the prospect of using non-conventional design thinking principles to create the perfect part becomes are very real prospect.
The compound annual growth rate for 3D printed end use parts for 2018 was 60%, so what is driving this?
Many things, including manufacturing in the medical industry and light weighting in the aerospace and automotive industry, the talk will discuss how design principles drive this disruptive technology for the creation of components as prototypes and end use parts.
