“Just like the survey we covered back in March from Essentium, the industry has been slow at adopting 3D printing for mass-production – scale remains the limiting factor. While 3D printing was almost exclusively used for rapid prototyping a few years ago, it is clear that it is now more focused on final production. Sculpteo reveals that 3D printing remains highly prized for product development, especially for limited series and custom parts, as well as for rapid prototyping – although the trend is being revised downwards. This is not surprising when you consider the pace at which technologies and materials have developed recently.”

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.
