3D printing service provider and software developer Materialise presents the latest trends in additive manufacturing every year. At the end of this year, the company has also made its predictions for 2023.
Over the last thirty years, additive manufacturing has become an important part of the manufacturing toolbox. Its versatility and flexibility bring plenty of added value — yet it has also spent much of that time isolated from conventional production processes. However, those walls are slowly coming down, with the two worlds beginning to merge.
Each year, Materialise presents the 3D printing trends that will shape our industry in the coming months. For 2023, they believe that these four trends hold the key to breaking down the barriers that are still associated with adopting the technology as part of an industrial manufacturing process.
- The rise of smart, distributed manufacturing
- A focus on cost reduction
- The shift from process automation to workflow automation
- Data security and data integrity becoming top of mind
By addressing these topics, companies can scale up their 3D printing operations into volume production and advance the overall adoption of 3D printing. Watch the video below to learn more about the four biggest 3D printing trends for 2023.
