The world of additive manufacturing is at a crucial point. There have been breakthroughs in printing larger parts. More metals are being developed for use in 3D printers. Additive is becoming part of the game plan of many different manufacturers.
At the same time, there have been new challenges as 3D printing becomes more industrialized. Manufacturers are studying where 3D printing fits in with their factories. That includes how 3D printing should be integrated with traditional subtractive manufacturing, where parts are cut and grinded.
SME teamed up with Kevin Nerem, an applications engineer at 3D printing solutions provider, Stratasys, to analyze how additive and traditional manufacturing are being integrated on the factory floor.
