Already benefit from practical 3D Printing use cases
For those who are unfamiliar, Aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), hospitals, dentists, and their suppliers already benefit from practical 3D Printing use cases.
One can also observe that, beyond aerospace, Stratasys’s PolyJet modelling has proven particularly effective in producing anatomical models for surgical planning.
According to ABI Research, because PolyJet modelling can use multiple materials and colors, it can produce customized models with bones of the correct density and tissues with accurate vascular structures. Also, adoption will pick up in footwear, where Adidas will use Carbon’s AM systems for mid-soles in thousands of shoes and Nike will use HP’s for spikes on track and football cleats.
