  • (1888PressRelease) January 26, 2015 - 3D Printing has begun reshaping the manufacturing base and promises to be the 21st Century's industrial revolution. In short, it can deliver "Real-Life Objects" FASTER, CHEAPER, and more importantly, ON-DEMAND. Major impacts on industrial Manufacturing & Productivity are to be realized as the prototypes can be rapidly fabricated and perfected without tooling limitations or wastage of materials and manpower. Practically all industries will be impacted; examples include (1) Defense, (2) Medical, (3) Aerospace, (4) Automotive, (5) Consumer Products, (6) Sporting Goods, (7) Architectural, (8) Wearables, (9) Customized Foods, and (10) Household Items. Join us on a journey through the world of "3D Printing: Next Revolution in Fabricating Materials into Real-Life Objects"; an adventure we have never seen before in industrial manufacturing.
