3D Printing, also known as Additive Manufacturing, improves upon the traditional product design and development process and offer manufacturers many advantages. Below is a summary of what Additive Manufacturing (AM), can do for product design and development – and it should be noted that nearly all of these benefits save companies either time, money, or both!
Additive Manufacturing, AM, is one of the fastest growing industries in the US today. AM, commonly known as 3D printing, has proven to have matured beyond prototyping and is capable of full-scale production. For example, in 2018 the HP MJF printers alone produced more than 10 million parts worldwide – and that is expected to double in 2019! 3D printing technologies are advancing rapidly and are becoming more widely adopted by manufacturers.
