Six questions can help you find value as you apply DFAM.
Succeeding with additive manufacturing requires enterprise-wide buy-in and change. EOS describes tactics including a two-team structure: transformation team and implementation team.
Smaller batches and shorter lead times are just two of the benefits of 3D printing parts in plastic. Here are six reasons to choose polymer additive manufacturing (with examples).

And if so, what can you do about it? NIOSH researchers share the organization’s approach to eliminate, avoid and reduce operator contact with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and ultrafine particles from fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printers.
If you are a medical professional in the U.S., you've likely heard that 3D printing can be an answer to equipment shortages. Here's how to find local 3D printing specialists and how to talk to them once you have.
The impact of the COVID-19 virus has reached U.S. manufacturers by way of the supply chain. Here are several ways 3D printing could help, plus a video discussion of the data with economist Michael Guckes.

The MT360 event, organized by AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, is expected to accelerate the implementation of growing technologies into manufacturing applications.
With more than 100 facilities and about 200,000 employees worldwide, Flex has a steep challenge in bringing 3D printing into its operations. Five things the company is learning.
There are gaps in additive manufacturing where no published standard or specification currently exists for AM to respond to a particular industry need. Learn about the resources and additive standards and make more sense of the growing technology in this sphere.
No longer limited to paper, Sheet Lamination bonds sheets of material together to form an object. Companies are now expanding to different materials for sheet lamination, exploring the growing possibilities of a process that started with gluing and stacking hundreds of colored sheets of paper together.
I sat in on one and a half days of a five-day class offered at the Additive Manufacturing Institute of Science and Technology (AMIST) in Louisville. Here’s just some of what I learned.
