Creativity is the key to design for additive manufacturing

Creativity is the key to design for additive manufacturing | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it
The 3D printing industry is three decades old and much has changed in that time. 3D printing started out as a slow and expensive process used for prototyping. The hardware has advanced tremendously since then, with the speed of 3D printing processes approaching the speeds of traditional manufacturing methods for some applications, leading increasing numbers of businesses to adopt 3D printing as a manufacturing solution. Designing parts for 3D printing, however, is an area where great limitations exist, compounded by a greater demand for scarce skills.
