The Additive Manufacturing Transformation: Empowering (Distributed) Manufacturing with 3D Printing

In the recent years, we have seen strong technological advancements in additive manufacturing. Manufacturing companies can now build on the technology to form distributed production networks to make their operations more efficient, more resilient, and more sustainable.

I present a framework ensuring the right design choices and identify most suitable applications for distributed manufacturing. We address critical issues like IP protection and certification and business viability. The presentation also includes a case study of manufacturing companies starting the journey and service providers in the field. Moreover, this presentation will reflect on the transformatory challenges of the shift from prototyping to manufacturing 3D printing use cases and how to master this transition to the benefit of operations. The future of 3D printing will be driven by manufacturing applications.
