The cover story of the November issue of Additive Manufacturing places AM into the context of an even larger idea. Lockheed Martin Space Systems is aiming to achieve what it calls the “digital tapestry,” a vision for manufacturing that avoids unnecessary effort and interpretation by keeping all manufacturing information in the digital realm. Additive manufacturing, because it can directly manifest a design conceived through digital collaboration, is valuable to realizing this ideal. Also in this issue, metal and plastic part maker Harbec Inc. describes how it uses AM alongside other manufacturing processes. The digital edition of this issue is available now.
