Realising the benefits of 3D printing

04 Apr 2017

The manufacturing industry in the UK, and indeed the world, is facing challenges and opportunities that come once in a lifetime. 3D printing, which has evolved over the last 30 years, is now reaching the tipping point where it is entering the mainstream.

We conducted one-to-one research with companies working with the technology: using 3D printing to produce prototypes as well as finished parts, and those developing software relevant to 3D printing, design protection and data logistics. The results were fascinating.

This report looks at the driving forces behind the progression of 3D printing, the ways companies in the UK are using the technology, the risks posed to businesses by the technology and the steps they should take to protect their IP.
