Industrial 3D printing survey; AMUG updates
Texan 3D printing technology and materials provider Essentium has released the findings of its independent survey, ‘3D Printing At Scale’. The survey, conducted by Dimensional Research, reveals that 3D production manufacturing stakeholders and decision makers are preparing to shift their industrial 3D printing from prototyping to full-scale 3D printing production runs. Over half of the respondents to the survey are reported to be preparing for industrial scale 3D printing, with 21% already using 3D printing for full scale production part runs. While expressing confidence on the future impact of industrial scale 3D printing in manufacturing, the survey respondents also cited cost, scale, part strength and skills as major obstacles to hurdle.
