As the 3D printing industry matures, we can see a stream of very positive developments unfold. Away from the hype and hubris, there has been true progress in getting parts out the door.
Advances in this area have been painstakingly slow. And it has to be. 3D printing technologies are complex and have novel ways of producing parts. Every voxel of every printed component is unique due to the very nature of additive manufacturing (AM). We are not cutting into a known block of metal but building out of powder or streams of jetted material. The challenges of our industry
