<span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing — faster and cheaper than Amazon or shops downtown

Any­one who buys a 3D print­er knows the start time in which one prints all sort of nec­es­sary and unnec­es­sary objects. After a while this amount decreas­es and you print more prag­mat­i­cal­ly and focus on util­i­ty (the thing 3D print­ers are actu­al­ly made for). In this blog post we walk you through a prac­ti­cal 3D […]

Does a desktop <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printer pay off at home?

The broad range of pos­si­bil­i­ties a 3D print­er offers is not clear to most peo­ple. This results in the most impor­tant ques­tion of all: Does a 3D print­er at home pay off? The answer to this is “yes”, at least if you believe an Amer­i­can study. The arti­cle with the title “Emer­gence of Home Man­u­fac­tur­ing […]

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 […]

Mass production vs personalized <span class=“caps”>3D</span> Printing

The cur­rent state of tech­nol­o­gy only allows lim­it­ed appli­ca­tions of 3D print­ers. Despite this, indus­tri­al print­ers play an impor­tant role in many indus­tries and cre­ate entire­ly new busi­ness mod­els. On the one hand, they stand in com­pe­ti­tion with tra­di­tion­al mass pro­duc­tion and on the oth­er hand both tech­nolo­gies com­ple­ment each oth­er. “Log­ic takes you from […]
