Posted By Lucie Gaget on Dec 30, 2019 | 0 comments

Additive manufacturing is evolving quite fast, and we saw it once again, in 2019. One year does not seem to be a lot, but it is enough in the 3D printing industry to develop new technologies, new materials or even find new applications. 2020 will definitely offer your business new opportunities. Let’s discover it right now. 


2020: a big year for 3D printing? 


If 2019 was already a great year for 3D printing, we can tell you that it is only a start! Additive manufacturing is now more democratized, meaning that it is becoming affordable for both small businesses and bigger companies, to implement. More use of additive manufacturing also means new possibilities, new applications, new challenges to go through. 3D printing is a growing industry, offering many new advantages to businesses. 


A lot of different sectors are now making the most of this cutting-edge technology. We saw that in 2019, 3D printing helped to make big progress in the medical industry. Additive manufacturing is more and more developed to answer to surgeons’ and patients’ needs. 


At Sculpteo, we are seeing a lot of new customers starting to use our 3D printing service for medical 3D printing. Students, surgeons, and dentists are seeing all the benefits of additive manufacturing for their daily work. We also saw in our blog posts that 3D printing is saving more and more lives thanks to the development of 3D printed hearts or 3D printed lungs. The evolution of bioprinting and of additive manufacturing, in general, is revolutionizing the medical industry and we could see significant improvements in 2020.


Architecture, fashion and automotive industries are also going to push 3D printing boundaries in 2020. From mass customization to XL printing, some aspects of additive manufacturing will be brought even further this year!
