Novel additive manufacturing processes 3D printing can offer benefits across the entire value chain from initial concept design to final manufacturing and all steps in between. Different applications, from health to transportation, from design to cultural heritage, from construction to foods have unique opportunity to develop advanced products by choosing an appropriate 3D printer. Identifying the specific requirements within the entire design-to-manufacture process help to optimize the benefits of 3D printing: complex product geometry, processing of different materials including composites, customized products and devices, shorter time-to-market, improved product quality and performance.
