3D printing has escaped the design lab and is now being used to make manufacturing fixtures, molds, robotic tooling, and even end-use parts for mission critical applications like prostheses, surgical guides, race cars and airplanes.
Small wonder, then, that one-third of respondents to ASSEMBLY Magazine's 2014 State of the Profession survey claim they are actively exploring additive manufacturing. Or that the market research firm Freedonia Group predicts world demand for 3D printers and related materials and software will rise 21 percent per year to reach $5 billion in 2017.
In this eBook, prepared especially for you by ASSEMBLY magazine and Stratasys, you'll learn just how far additive manufacturing has come. If NASA is using the technology to make parts for extraterrestrial vehicles, it's come a long way indeed.
