How to fully leverage Additive Manufacturing from one-off prototypes to end production. ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 23 May 2018—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces the publication of an eBook titled “Industrializing Additive Manufacturing.” Hobbyists and early adopters used Additive Manufacturing (AM) machines to make freeform organic shapes they couldn’t make any other way. Now, driven by investments by industrial companies seeking to improve engineering processes and make better products faster and cheaper, attempts are being made to use AM for industrial end-use product production. Big challenges remain such as materials, regulatory compliance, speed, price, and reliability, but momentum in key areas such as material science help improve material print properties such as the build-rate to resolution ratio, meaning end-use production quality parts are now possible. There is low or no cost penalty for geometric complexity when using AM. What this means is AM manufactured components can have
