Top 3 Manufacturing Predictions for 2019

As the manufacturing industry continues to grow and evolve, we're seeing more focus being put on smart machines, IIoT and Industry 4.0. This is not a trend that is going away any time soon.

Can a 3D Printer Build a Rocket?

NASA has successfully tested its first rocket engine component made through 3D printing. The 3D printed component produced a breathtaking 20,000 pounds of thrust.

Four Key Technology Trends - How Engineering Software Companies Can Capitalize on Them

The exact impact of IoT, AR/VR, mobile, and generative design will vary from company to company, but make no mistake: These trends are already starting to shape the landscape around them.

Polymers, Productivity and Policy: 3D Printing Trends in 2019

For 2019, we expect new users will continue to find their way towards additive manufacturing, and we'll see an increasing number of companies shifting their production to AM or adding AM into the mix. New product introductions will bring success and failure...

IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Manufacturing 2019 Predictions

Key themes woven into our worldwide manufacturing top 10 predictions for 2019 include the focus on digital transformation (DX), manufacturing business ecosystems, supply chain management, product and service innovation, and smart manufacturing.

3D-Printing File Formats Must Evolve with the Industry

One of the first trends driving change is 3D printings transition from prototyping to commercial-grade production, combined with the increasing popularity of metal as a printing material.

5 Steps to Preparing for the Future in the Manufacturing Sector

The manufacturing sector currently contributes £6.7 trillion to the global economy. Despite being subject to regular negative reports, the UK continues to play a significant role in the evolution and growth of global manufacturing.

How to Evaluate if a Part Is Fit for Additive Manufacturing?

In the past manufacturability was often foremost in the designers mind. A lot of geometries which might have been almost impossible or very expensive via conventional manufacturing techniques are now possible and sometimes even cheaper via 3D printing.
