The online store utilizes open capacity at its sister 3D printer farms for on-demand production with no startup costs, allowing designers to sell physical products as easily as digital ones.
Decentralizing production through additive manufacturing can bring numerous benefits, but these can only be realized through trust. VeriTX is building a platform to secure a trusted digital supply chain for aerospace and beyond.
The Veterans Health Administration is collaborating with 3D Systems to establish FDA-compliant medical device manufacturing facilities using additive solutions.
With additive manufacturing, production can be relocated quickly and performed at whatever site is ideal. But what about the capacity waiting for this shift? Relationship gives global producer access to “transactional” 3D printing.
The widespread outsourcing of large machine castings led a collaborative team at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to tackle the machine tool supply chain. The first step? 3D print the largest cast component.
