From robotics to dentistry and from food to metals, 3D printing is exponentially maturing
It doesn’t take a great degree of imagination to picture future applications for 3D printing in robotics, as examples of how the technology is already being used in the industry easily lend themselves to extensions on concepts.
3D printing is heavily utilized in the design of robots due to the flexibility and customization that 3D printing provides.
It’s next to impossible to find exact statistics, but one estimate is that at least 40 percent of the top 2,000 manufacturers are now utilizing intelligent machine tools and 3D printing as a way of optimizing material usage and reducing waste.
