A short while ago, I was interviewed by Gary Hilson with EBN, the premier online community for global supply chain professionals. The result of our conversation is this article, which I hope you’ll check out.
He asked some great questions about the state of 3D Printing and we covered a lot of ground. In the article – “Additive 3D Printing Creates Another Supply Chain Tier” – Gary captures the current state of the market and how it’s evolving. In our view, and that of many of our customers, the sheer proliferation of CAD-driven technologies is too much for most companies to keep track of, let alone invest in. That has created a spot for 3Diligent to provide unique value to customers with a business model and approach that is specifically suited to this paradigm shift toward digital and bespoke manufacturing. There’s a bit of content in there about GE’s purchase of printer manufacturers Arcam and Concept Laser GmbH (more on that in this blog post) and 3Diligent’s latest announcement about our broadened range of metal rapid manufacturing options. The article also features commentary from Jon Harrop, director at market research firm IDTechEx, who shared his take on 3D printing, materials used and its impact on the supply chain.
