Putting 3D Printing to the Test
Additive Manufacturing – Between Growth Euphoria and a Sense of Reality
A gap exists between growth in equipment sales and numbers of manufactured parts. Most likely, a lot of experimentation is still going on. A symposium provided insights into projects, problems and prospects for additive manufacturing.
