What's holding back growth of 3D printing and additive manufacturing?

Jim O'Donnell for TechTarget:  The era of 3D printing and additive manufacturing may be just around the corner, but the industry needs to coalesce for it to grow to scale, according to panel at Rapid + TCT conference.

The era of 3D printing and additive manufacturing always seems imminent, but it never quite materializes. This notion may finally be on the way out, however, as the manufacturing industry continues to shift to digital technology.

The turning point may be near, according to a panel keynote discussion at the Rapid + TCT 3D printing and additive manufacturing conference and tradeshow held last week in Pittsburgh.

ROBOTMASTER V7

ROBOTMASTER V7

Since Robotmaster V7 uses integrated CAD/CAM functionality, for the first time, the power of Robotmaster can be used by welding, cutting and other process experts without buying or learning complex CAD/CAM software. As in past versions, Robotmaster V7 imports paths, but now makes it even easier for end users to leverage any CAD/CAM tool choice. It is an intuitive tool that anyone could use, with or without robotics expertise. It bridges the gap between robots and manufacturing by providing easy programming solutions for part manufacturing.
