Collaboration and 3D Printing Streamline Boat Production

Even though large scale additive manufacturing is becoming more common, it’s still no less impressive to see what it can produce. Massive objects can be 3D printed in very few or even in one piece, and when you add CNC machining into the equation, you get an even more streamlined manufacturing process. That’s what Thermwood […]
