3D printing once was a rogue idea - unrefined and unaccepted. Recent product developments
and enhancements in 3D printers and their modular design capabilities have allowed for the 3D
printing market to explode.
According to The State of 3D Printing
, and referenced in Forbes
magazine, “93% of companies
using 3D printing in 2018 are now able to gain competitive advantages, including reducing time-
to-market and flexing to support shorter production runs for customers.” Imagine what you

Custom designs for specialty products are made easy with modular designs. 3D printers are
revolutionary tools that provides solutions to the pressing question: how can manufacturers
and product developers get their products on the shelves and into homes faster, without
Companies that require made-to-order products on a whim could seriously benefit from having
access to a large format 3D printer. The State of 3D Printing notes, “64% of Aerospace and
Defense companies are using 3D printing in production of their parts, leading all other
industries.” Seventy-percent of those companies and investors have increased their
investments in 3D printing in 2018.
According to the Wohlers Report, investments in the metal additive industry can expect 21%
