3D Printing - Time to Make the Leap?
 

Advances in 3D printing hardware and materials over the past decade have now made this once emerging technology a process that is rapidly redefining manufacturing.

 

From rapid prototyping to manufacturing precision, complex parts, 3D printing is increasing the speed at which you can take your CAD files from concept to reality. In 2014 alone, the 3D printing industry grew by more than $1 billion to about $4 billion, according to Wohler's Report.

Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25%, 3D printing is expected to be worth more than $17 billion by the year 2020. The chart below shows the expected growth rate for 3D printing in various sectors over the next 5 years.
