3D printing is currently being integrated into mainstream manufacturing for applications such as tooling, prototyping and end parts. However, new developments are already underway which hint at the future of additive manufacturing (AM)’s potential.
New plastic and metal AM technologies herald a future of low-cost parts made on-demand, while robotic innovations aim to further automate 3D printing for use in the factory. Exciting applications, including 3D printing micromotors, organic tissue and objects in space, even suggest the ability to bring science fiction into reality.
In this 103-page eBook, you will learn about new technologies in:
3D printing plastics
3D printing carbon fiber
3D printing electronics
3D printing metals
3D printing with robotic arms
3D printing in space, at the micro level and with organic tissues
