3D Printing has many innovative capabilities such as prototyping for manufacturing, medicine, architecture and design. In recent news, we have seen 3D Printing being used to build new houses in under 24 hours, as well as the development of artificial organs which can be used in live saving operations. The technology has a number of benefits, so it’s no wonder that the additive manufacturing industry is expected to double in size every 3 years.
With so much growth in this area, there are plenty of industry insights, news and trends to stay ahead of.
