3D printing is now a common tool for design and testing, but the next frontier is manufacturing. The first step is to understand when it’s right for manufacturing. We’ll review basic principles regarding when to opt for 3D printing (additive manufacturing) for production runs. We’ll look at examples of success that underscore the broad principles. And we’ll include an analysis of 3D printing versus plastic molding in terms or cost, speed and quality. This session is for making manufacturing decisions today.
