"The State of the 3D Printing Solutions Market"

Product design and development is increasingly a digital process. Simulations, virtual prototypes and digital twins help companies face the challenge of designing better, more complex products faster — but they only go so far. Design engineers need a physical prototype to validate form, fit and function, and to get approval on design changes. In the past, that meant expensive, time-consuming custom manufacturing that could be a bottleneck to product development. Now, 3D printing allows design engineers to quickly move between the digital and physical worlds so they can maintain the pace of innovation that is required by today’s tight product development deadlines.
