Survey Says: Manufacturing Leaders Report Use of 3D Printing for Full-Scale Production
When I read the results of a small survey recently conducted by Additive Manufacturing and Gardner Intelligence, I wanted to share them with you. Here is a 5-minute video explaining the survey methodology and results. A few interesting findings.
In 2012 I teamed up with Pete Zelinski from sister publication Modern Machine Shop to launch a special supplement for both of our brands on additive manufacturing. Today that supplement is a standalone brand with a print magazine, daily online content stream and conferences.
I am now an occasional contributing editor to that brand when it comes to stories about the use of 3D printing and additive manufacturing within mold manufacturing. On top of that, as your interest, understanding and use of the various AM technologies have grown, we have increased our coverage of these topics within MoldMaking Technology.
