Additive Manufacturing is conquering the Automotive Industry
Friday, June 20, 2014 by Alexander Oster
3D Printing's disruptive advantages will transform the automotive business. While it may be a while until we see 3D printed parts in mainstream cars, the racing and high-end automotive industry is jumping on titanium and steel parts, which exploit unique geometries that can not be achieved in any other way.
Christian von Koenigsegg, one of the leading hypercar manufacturers, explains in detail, how he uses 3D Printing to boost the performance of his production cars. This is way beyond what we know as "Rapid Prototyping" in the last 20 years.

netfabb at RAPID 2014—Upcoming trends in additive manufacturing
Wednesday, June 18, 2014 by Charlie Luzolo
Taking place for the 21st time this year, RAPID 2014 again proved its status as a first grade hot spot for additive manufacturing and 3D Printing, giving a good overview of what AM may mean to industry today.
Speaking of big industrial potential, netfabb has provoked a keen interest of RAPID attendees especially in our highlight on display, the new netfabb Model Repair Service powered by Windows Azure.
As leading AM analyst and guru Terry Wohlers put it in his keynote talk, AM is becoming a really big issue with respect to metal based AM machines. The extraordinary increase of sales of 3D printers capable of producing metal parts of nearly 76% in 2013 vs. 2012 is primarily due to an intensely growing interest of medical, dental and aerospace industries in AM. This trend is neatly reflected by netfabb's reference customers. Category: 3D Printer
