How top space companies are profiting from 3D Printing

 Aerospace companies are poised for significant gains by integrating additive manufacturing. They benefit from reducing weight at every opportunity so lightweight components make a huge difference in cost and feasibility for space. Remote, on-demand and small batch production are also significant factors for space travel. And the real future is in producing new components directly in space from other parts.

Optimizing your 3D Printing Workflow for Medical & Dental

How to combine existing and innovating technology to improve quality, and reduce costs of medical supplies.

Medical costs are one of the major problems that societies face, especially in countries with aging populations.  One of the biggest cost considerations for medical and dental solutions is producing small batch custom parts that are adjusted to patient's unique body form. Because these are mostly 1-time products, they have high production costs. But with the introduction of new technologies like 3D scanning and 3D printing those costs are being significantly reduced. As more companies experiment with the technologies, they are also moving them into wider adoption. Workflows and tools are becoming available to integrate this innovative technology into existing practices to improve performance, quality and reduce costs of medical supplies.
