Video: 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Additive Manufacturing
The manufacturers who have begun to succeed with 3D printing as a means of production are beginning to see what the ultimate impact of additive manufacturing (AM) might be.
In this video, Additive Manufacturing editor-in-chief Peter Zelinski discusses five ideas that were not clear at first, but are now becoming apparent. They are:
- The greatest freedom might be material freedom.
- AM will produce products you’ve never seen before.
- AM is a logistics solution.
- AM will alter how we think about quality.
- AM is interrelated with machining.
MolyWorks is future-proofing the circular economy for metals with small-footprint atomization technology that converts metal scrap into additive manufacturing powder on the spot. But that's not the end of the story.
The biggest AM event gets bigger. The sophistication of attendees advances. Materials, digital tools and postprocessing are prominent. Here are 10 impressions of this year’s show.
Origin’s platform isn’t just another resin 3D printer based on digital light processing (DLP). Through hardware, software and material partnerships, the company is changing what is possible inside a photopolymerization printer.
