Production System metal 3D printer set to compete with traditional methods of mass production

Former Vice President Al Gore told the audience attending a conference at Desktop Metal (DM) in March that acceptance of new technologies usually takes longer than expected. And often the old ways of doing things must be jettisoned before a new technology can gain traction. Gore cited 3D printing as an example. “So many changes had to take place before 3D printing could be accepted,” he said. “The infrastructure. The thinking.
