  1. 3D Printing For End-Use Production
    5/22/2018

    3D printing has recently developed a reputation as an essential manufacturing process for prototype parts. Instead of creating merely conceptual models that are not durable for long-term use, this technology is now being used in machining, injection molding, and other conventional manufacturing processes. This article explores the new and existing technology leaders in this area, and assesses the capabilities of production for each 3D printing process.

  2. 3D Printing Micro Features With Stereolithography’s MicroFine Material
    5/22/2018

    Sterolithography (SLA) 3D printing is available in three resolutions (normal, high, and micro) for a range of part geometries. Most parts can be built in normal resolution, but, high resolution may also be required.

    The additive manufacturing community is abuzz with discussions of what the future will look like—for aerospace, for medicine, and for countless other fields. By Crystal Morrison, Ph.D.

  4. 3D Opportunity In Medical Technology: Additive Manufacturing Comes To Life
    7/10/2015

    Given the strong alignment of AM capabilities with the medical device segment’s needs, and the medtech industry’s ability to support investment in new technologies, it is perhaps no surprise that AM has made substantial inroads with health care practitioners and service providers. Our goal here is to investigate ways that AM may influence the trajectory of the medical device segment. By Glenn H. Snyder, Mark J. Cotteleer, and Ben Kotek, Deloitte
