How Companies Can Benefit from 3D Printing

3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is raising the bar for companies across a variety of industries in terms of convenience, capabilities, and lowering cost. To maintain a competitive edge, companies must keep pace with the developments occurring within their respective fields and should consider pursuing patent protection when appropriate to capitalize upon their own innovative contributions.

As 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, rapidly expands into almost every industry, it’s raising the bar for companies everywhere. Additive manufacturing is often used to prepare prototypes and is frequently preferable when manufacturing individual or small batch components. Additionally, additive manufacturing assembles components in discrete layers, and, as a result, complex interior geometries are easier to manufacture compared to traditional manufacturing techniques. As a result, additive manufacturing can cheaply and quickly manufacture parts that would otherwise be expensive and difficult to make using traditional manufacturing techniques (e.g., subtractive manufacturing). As additive manufacturing machines are becoming cheaper, the process is becoming exceedingly more ubiquitous in most every industry.
