The 3D printing industry has proven instrumental in the production of essential medical equipment ranging from face masks to ventilators.A key reason why additive manufacturing has been so effective during the pandemic: it doesn't rely on a global supply chain.
Using stacked model data, the technique can dramatically increase 3D printing output, assisting in producing face shields for healthcare workers fighting COVID-19.
While most analysis of the IoT is in respect of its positive influence on manufacturing processes, the growth in the IoT also opens up huge possibilities for micro molding as there is burgeoning demand for a variety of new and innovative micro devices.
3D Systems Announces First-to-Market Enhancements to Reverse Engineering Software - Enabling Increased Efficiency & Accuracy across Broad Application Portfolio
-Unique unroll/reroll function in Geomagic® Design X enables a new modeling workflow for complex revolved parts resulting in a 94% efficiency improvement. -Geomagic Design X's new features for hybrid surfacing workflows accelerate productivity, improve downstream CAD re-usability
The growing need for developing complex and high-quality components while keeping the manufacturing costs low is a primary factor driving the demand for the 3D printing solutions in the automotive sector.
"It's so rare that we get to show some of the capabilities we have, especially one that has gone through finish machining, says Scott Woida, President ADDere, "I think it gives a new perspective to what is possible with the technology."
While 3D printing is already used extensively in the healthcare industry, as technology advances and becomes more refined, we are likely to see amazing results.
Traditional CNC business models and organisations are currently under threat. The COVID-19 outbreak has made it clear just how vulnerable the complex, global manufacturing supply chains are.

3D bioprinting offers opportunities such as testing treatment for diseases using artificially affected tissues, and through using bioink, it's much easier to solve problems on a patient-specific level, promoting simpler operations.
Challenged with extraordinary delivery and quality issues, a plastics producer turned to Cornerstone Consulting Organization (CCO) to lead an aggressive operation recovery effort.
The impending uses of 3D printing are still being exposed. This article highlights some of the applications presently under way that are probable to be in general use first.
For companies that are exploring the possibilities that exist for miniaturization of plastic parts and components, there are some seemingly daunting obstacles that exist, not least the vagaries of the micro molding process itself.
Overall, IDTechEx calculated that this industry received over $100M in investment in 2019. There are very good reasons for both the composite and 3D printing industry to be excited.
The rapid prototyping and 3D printing plastic parts for wind tunnel testing became a well-established model but Katsanis wondered "why not do this with metal"?
