ASTM Adds New Metal 3D Printing Standards, Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence Partner

ASTM Adds New Metal 3D Printing Standards, Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence Partner

Metal 3D printing is an extremely fast-growing sector, and as it grows, the need for standards becomes increasingly important. Metal 3D printed parts are being used in markets such as the automotive, aerospace, and medical industries, and in these industries, there’s really no room for error, especially as more critical parts are being 3D printed. […]

Adopting Additive Manufacturing: Financing as a Barrier to Entry in 3D Printing

Adopting Additive Manufacturing: Financing as a Barrier to Entry in 3D Printing

One of the major advantages of 3D printing often touted in marketing literature is its cost-cutting capability as compared to traditional manufacturing techniques. As material is built up in additive manufacturing, rather than cut away through subtractive techniques, materials savings can be substantial as only the necessary amount is processed for a given component. Especially […]

Adopting Additive Manufacturing: Skills Shortage in 3D Printing Leaves Many Wondering How to Educate, Upskill, Fill Jobs

Adopting Additive Manufacturing: Skills Shortage in 3D Printing Leaves Many Wondering How to Educate, Upskill, Fill Jobs

Driving a successful industry is a successful workforce; that workforce, though, has to come from somewhere. In terms of additive manufacturing, lately we’ve been seeing an increasing call toward the importance of education, skills, and training as the industry advances beyond its infancy. This call was loud and clear last week in Nottingham, as the […]

Industrial Realities of Additive Manufacturing: 3D Printing without the Hype

Industrial Realities of Additive Manufacturing: 3D Printing without the Hype

This week in Nottingham, great minds in additive manufacturing are converging at the International Conference on Additive Manufacturing & 3D Printing. The event, now in its twelfth year, is always highly anticipated as the speaker lineup promises a look into the depths of the 3D printing business — without the hype. Among the well-regarded lineup […]

3D printing is nothing new to the European Space Agency (ESA). The ESA, after all, was the agency to propose building a 3D printed base on the moon, and regularly makes 3D printing headlines for everything from conductive 3D printed CubeSats to 3D printed bricks made from simulated moon dust. Now the agency has partnered with […]

Additive Manufacturing Isn’t the Whole Answer: Why Hybrid Technologies Are the Future of Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing Isn’t the Whole Answer: Why Hybrid Technologies Are the Future of Manufacturing

Obviously here at 3DPrint.com we think 3D printing is the bee’s knees; additive manufacturing techniques are finding their way into nearly every area of production, having started in the 1980s by presenting a rapid prototyping solution. Here we are now in 2017 and 3D technology has spread to every aspect of production, with 3D design […]
