3D Printing is a form of additive, distributed manufacturing that provides the ability to create physical objects from digital designs through a layer-by-layer process using various types of raw materials. Applications and services facilitated by 3D Printing include prototyping, printing spare parts, and producing finished goods across many industry verticals including healthcare, electronics, consumer goods, automotive, aerospace, and many more.
3D Printing is transformative beyond the printing industry itself as it is poised to cause a huge shift in manufacturing, especially when coupled with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and advancements in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). In next five years, virtually every human will come into touch with 3D printed products. 3D Printing is an essential building block, along with 5G, AI, and IIoT in forming the 4th industrial revolution, commonly referred to as Industry 4.0.
