This video describes various ways 3D printing streamlines and supports beverage production.
If SiC was easier and cheaper to apply, we would find many more uses for this hard, lightweight ceramic. Researchers have found a promising additive manufacturing approach, with crystal growth as the bonding mechanism.

Essentium’s additive manufacturing machine based on semiconductor manufacturing has as much in common with precision machine tools as with other FFF 3D printers.
Is additive manufacturing efficient for producing current part designs? No … except also yes. Is it a replacement for current processes? No … except when it is. Recent posts reveal the role additive is likely to play in production.
Surgical Guides Illustrate Promise of Mass Customization; “Up Front is Where Most Value Created,” Says Materialise’s VancraenBy: Peter Zelinski
Interconnected software systems allow for production via additive manufacturing of a product tailored to individual surgeries.
Spirit AeroSystems recently began installing the Boeing 787’s first titanium structural component to be made through AM. The part is not critical but also not minor. I spoke with manufacturing leaders at Spirit about the meaning of the part and the way forward for additive in aircraft structures.
Geometric freedom is just the start. AM will also change how design happens.
