Fabbaloo: Essentium’s Survey Results

| The Essentium Team


3D printer manufacturer Essentium just released the results of their recent survey on production 3D printing usage.

The company has been building a rather interesting 3D printer targeted at manufacturers who wish to produce larger quantities of parts by leveraging the new machine’s speedy capabilities. Their new machine incorporates a number of design features that should make it one of the fastest available.

The ability to 3D print at speed could move towards a solution to one of the eternal dilemmas of using 3D printing for production purposes: it just takes way too long to complete a print.

But is that really the case? Essentium sought to find out the answers by issuing a survey they called “Printing at Scale”. Now they’ve released the results of the survey for all to see. We examined their survey to find out more.

The survey was responded to by 114 people who are in positions of authority for acquiring and dealing with 3D printers in their respective organizations. Right off the bat, I have to say that this does color the results somewhat, in that all of the responding organizations already have some level of involvement in 3D printing technology, and thus the survey is of less use if attempting to determine, say, if companies are considering a switch to the technology.

3D Natives: Essentium Survey Shows That Investments in AM are Paying Off

In early February, Essentium, Inc announced the results of the second in a series of findings from independent global research on the current and future use of industrial 3D printing. We previously covered the first survey published in 2019, which focused mainly on the slow adoption of additive manufacturing for mass-production. This new survey has shown significant advancements in that particular arena as well as significant benefits for users of industrial additive manufacturing while also highlighting remaining challenges to overcome, notably concerning the cost of 3D printing technologies and materials.
