Printing success: why intellectual property is key to large-scale 3D printing

The Crane Wasp 3D printer, created to print homes using local materials (Credit: Wasp) Quick, cost effective, efficient – more and more businesses are using 3D printing to carve out a niche in their sector, particularly if their product or service requires customisation. Recent advances in additive manufacturing (AM) technology, combined with the industry’s drive to reduce costs, has encouraged its use in a wide range of applications. Once primarily used for rapid prototyping, it is increasingly used to make added value products for high-value industrial applications. Businesses with access to 3D-printing systems are able to get their products to market more quickly, while improving process efficiency and enabling shorter production runs of customised products. Building bridges AM is gaining ground in the construction sector, where it is can produce large structures, such as buildings and bridges. In addition to its well-known efficiency benefits, using 3D-printing systems to build […]
