3D printing helps to simplify both manufacturing of a product and material recapture at the end of its usable life. The key is having a plan at the beginning. More in this video, the last in our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
3D printing makes possible new and different consumer goods, but also changes the buyer's relationship to those goods. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
3D printing can support the circular economy by offering an alternative to centralized mass production. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
The circular economy needs the lightweight, optimized and efficient designs that only 3D printing can provide. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.

What does it mean to be sustainable, to manufacture in a circular economy? And where does 3D printing fit? These questions and more answered in this video, the first of our 3D Printing and the Circular Economy series.
When serial production is the goal, quality is paramount. Contract manufacturer Cumberland Additive shares a benchmarking experiment comparing two of its powder bed fusion metal 3D printers in this presentation from AM In-Depth.
Researchers at Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, have created the first self-expanding nitinol stents made via powder bed fusion. The project points to more opportunities with this shape memory alloy.
