SPECIAL OFFER: Join the 3D Printing Technology Revolution

In recent years, 3D printing technology has taken off on a global level, with the potential to change the face of manufacturing as we know it.

Using an additive manufacturing process, 3D printing technology is able to create 3D objects by adding layer-upon-layer of material, no matter how intricate, even moving parts. It is being used to manufacture almost anything you can think of, from high-tech specialised parts for aviation and end-use parts for the automotive industry to custom-made biomedical prostheses such as hip joints.

Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, an indirect subsidiary of Stratasys released a report in August 2015 titled “3D Printing’s Imminent Impact on Manufacturing”, an in-depth industry report highlighting current and impending trends in 3D printing. In the report, respondents were asked what they perceive to be the top 3 benefits of both Additive Manufacturing in general and outsourcing Additive Manufacturing.

The four most popular responses are highlighted here:
