Additive manufacturing today is rapidly bridging the gap between design validation, where it is widely used to build product prototypes, to actual production. Because additive manufacturing is so different from conventional production technologies, it has the potential to rewrite the business playbook in manufacturing.

Written by Ray Huff, research associate, and Terry Wohlers, president, both at Wohlers Associates, Inc., this white paper focuses on four specific themes: 

  • Low-volume and customized parts
  • Improved performance
  • Part consolidation and optimization
  • Supply chain
