3D Printing as a Production Technology

Why a slow adoption rate?

So let’s talk about why industries have not been able to engage with 3D printing at scale. We’ve found the following reasons to be the most prevalent:

  • Slow build rates
  • Limited range of materials
  • 3D printed parts / materials uncertified
  • Properties of the 3D printed part

While these concerns were once valid, 3D printing has come a long way since in a very short time. Additive manufacturing companies are constantly improving each of these issues (and in many cases have already overcome them).
