The digitization of production has already begun and the 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing plays a key role in this. Companies should use 3D printers - and deal intensively with the legal risks about liability issues or piracy.
Last year, there was hardly any medium that did not reported about 3D printer and 3d printing, the maker scene or new applications of additive manufacturing processes in the industry. That said, the digitization of production has already begun. The production of workpieces by means of a generated 3D model on the computer is today reality, though there are the stringent quality requirements. Initially, 3D printing is a method for the production of prototypes and are already used in mass production in aircraft today.
Uninterested in the market for home desktop and semi-professional 3D printing, HP intends to meet the needs of the professional 3D printing industry with its MultiJet Fusion 3D- a printer that work with thermoplastic and uultimately ceramics and metals.
