The market is demanding more agile and sustainable production processes, to safe guard supply chains in an increasingly disrupted world as well as to deliver personalized solutions. Additive manufacturing (AM) has opened the door to digital and local production as it offers an efficient and sustainable method to realize smaller production runs and personalization in a cost-effective way.
Such shift requires collaboration across the value chain - printer companies, software, materials and end users. If everybody in the value chain works together, we can create an ecosystem that will offer benefits to all players and grow the entire market.
