Most of the general population does not realize that 3D printing has been around for over 30 years. At the other extreme many people who work with and around 3D printing frequently proclaim that Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a revolutionary technological breakthrough. Some people project that AM is potentially a disruptive technology that will replace traditional manufacturing and the way goods are produced and distributed while others see it as primarily a tool for rapid prototyping with some limited low volume production capability. AM technology continues to advance rapidly with the development and expansion of 3D printing capabilities, software advancements, scanning systems, and growth in the type materials that can be used with these systems. Rosy forecasts have been made by some regarding the future of AM technology, but it’s still uncertain how fast it will grow and how far it will go before its potential is reached.
