Every industry has a north star. For 3D printing, the drive these days is widespread adoption for production, to confirm additive manufacturing as a maturing and validated industry solution. With the ongoing impact of supply chain disruption continuing to unbalance traditional logistics, 3D printing is center stage as a solution. These last few years have catapulted our technology forward, with concepts we have been promoting — digital inventory, digital manufacturing, hyperlocal production, spare parts on demand, mass customization, qualified end-use parts — suddenly being seen by wider potential adopters. With this momentum, we are at a tipping point for AM and it is up to us as industry leaders to direct these solutions to those that can make the world better. Sustainability must be our guiding light as AM continues to rise in capability and in prominence. Join Nexa3D’s Avi Reichental for a discussion on why “digitizing supply chain sustainably” is more than a guiding principle: It’s a call to action.
