Large Scale Printing

3D printing moves beyond set parameters for larger projects in manufacturing

Implications - The potential of 3D printing is being realized as manufacturers remove boundaries with free form printers for creating large-scale products with ease. This innovation paired with the incorporation of new filament for the printers means the further expansion of this promising technology in a multitude of industries.
