3D printing growth: the most relevant studies to build your strategy
The 3d printing growth is on everyone minds these days. In general, 3D printing boasts an estimated annual growth of about 30%: with a market worth 4.1 billion, according to the Wohlers Report 2015, which is expected to reach 21.2 billion within the next 5 years. In practice, this will require increasingly larger and more sustainable investments in this technology, as with any manufacturing industry. This is something we touched on in... Read More
Beyond 3D Printed car and Supercar: can you 3D print car parts?
Prospective projects including 3D Printing are regularly shaking automative manufacturing by re-inventing the way we conceive and build cars. But should you wait several years before using 3D Printing in your own car? Last week’s announcement of the performances of Blade made the buzz. This supercar created by divergentmicrofactories is based on a 3D-printed chassis that can be assembled in a matter of minutes. The chassis... Read More
