Bionic and geometrical structures in <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing

One of the biggest chal­lenges that addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nolo­gies face is a far-reach­ing mind shift. So far, users of 3D print­ers (also known as “Mak­ers”) try to build con­ven­tion­al prod­ucts with the addi­tive tech­nol­o­gy. They hope to cre­ate an “aha” effect for cus­tomers and com­pa­nies con­vinc­ing them that the tech­nol­o­gy can pro­vide the same qual­i­ty […]

How <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing will kill mass-production in the long-term

The 3D print­ing hype in 2015 caused the pub­lic and busi­ness world to over­es­ti­mate the progress of addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing. Peo­ple were already talk­ing about the end of tra­di­tion­al and indus­tri­al mass pro­duc­tion. Today, a few years lat­er, every­one under­stands that these con­clu­sions were pre­ma­ture. Nowa­days, addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing is used as an addi­tion­al tech­nol­o­gy for cer­tain […]

3 ways to use desktop <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printers in business

Com­pa­nies use addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing since its inven­tion by Chuck Hall. It was extreme­ly dif­fi­cult for the large and expen­sive indus­tri­al machines to find prof­itable use cas­es. One cost-effec­tive exam­ple was and still is rapid pro­to­typ­ing for test­ing pur­pos­es dur­ing prod­uct devel­op­ment. Since 2017 a lot has changed and bet­ter solu­tions emerged with desk­top 3D print­ers […]
