Hype or new hope? Is 2020 the year 3D printing actually disrupts high-volume manufacturing?
"Last year saw staggering growth in the enterprise 3D printing market, which is shaking up manufacturing sectors around the globe. High-volume, low-value production manufacturing is shifting to a nimbler model, although the change isn't without some growing pangs, as recent on-demand manufacturing stumbles suggest.
Still, the growth is undeniable. According to a new report by 3D Hubs, an online manufacturing platform that provides engineers with on-demand access to a global network of manufacturing partners, the total value of 3D printed parts increased by a stunning 300 percent in 2019. Over 550,000 parts were 3D printed in 3D Hubs' ecosystem alone, and the total value of 3D printed parts tripled..."
