The additive manufacturing market continues to evolve and expand. Over the past several months, there have been several major mergers and acquisitions in this space, along with the emergence of new players, new software tools and new standards that will help ensure print quality and consistency.
Additive is a key piece of the White House AM Forward initiative for encouraging domestic manufacturing, as well as the recently passed CHIPs Act, which focuses on shifting microchip production to the U.S.
In this Special Focus Issue, we look at some of the challenges companies face when designing for additive, as well as the technologies that are helping more manufacturers adopt 3D printing. We hope you enjoy the issue.
