With traditional manufacturing methods, it’s not practical to manufacture a single item or short run of products – it’s simply too expensive. But what if there was a way to fill those needs for far less expense?
And what if those items could be created overnight, in-house and in a hands-off process? That’s exactly what 3D printing technology offers manufactures. Find out more in this informative white paper.
3D printing is changing the manufacturing industry – every day new 3D printed objects, devices and tools are replacing traditionally crafted parts, in some cases making manufacturing cheaper, faster and easier than ever before. That is only half of the story, and focusing on those products alone misses the real point of the revolution. The secrecy of yesterday's insolated IP practices has given way to a new model that pulls in fresh ideas and finds thought leaders across the world, across industries and across competing markets — a global exchange from the masses to the enterprise: a global crowdsourcing innovation system.
