A London-based startup, Additive Flow, aims to address some of the problems of additive manufacturing. Champions of 3D printing have been on the verge of claiming the technology could impart God-like powers (3D printing organs, for example) to engineers, but the technology has not even been able to become a mainstay of manufacturing.
Enough barriers to additive manufacturing exist to keep the technology somewhat of a novelty. Ask engineers or manufacturers why they are not using a technology that they must have heard about—often in breathless tones—one that promises the lightest-weight parts and is tailor-made for a digitalized workflow, and you will elicit wearied sighs.
They won’t know where to start. They may ask, “What is the problem that 3D printing is trying to […]
