3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing) was invented in 1984. But since then, the technology has rapidly changed and grown. A recent McKinsey report notes that 3D printing is at a “tipping point,” poised to “emerge from its niche status and become a viable alternative to conventional manufacturing processes in an increasing number of applications.”
Manufacturers have been steadily embarking on various aspects of additive manufacturing over the years. Some companies have continued to extend their experiences in additive manufacturing for building prototypes, repairs, mold making and printing into creating niche solutions.
One of the biggest promises of the additive manufacturing technology is the ability to enable customization and personalization, not just from consumer perspectives but also from an industrial perspective.
