Innovation within AM has historically been focused on machine technology: to produce more complex geometries, improve print times, increase print volume, and to utilize different materials. But as organizations begin to utilize Additive for on-demand printing, concurrent manufacturing, and serial production – scaling profitable operations will be a challenge. New innovations need to shift from machine technology to the environment in which these machines operate. Several key software developments in particular will help increase machine utilization, drive automation, and improve overall process efficiencies - to help scale profitable, additive manufacturing.
