Additive Manufacturing in 2022: Why Additive, and Why Now?

Additive manufacturing (AM) carries unique benefits compared to traditional manufacturing. Production of everything from prototypes to end-use parts is faster, cheaper, easier to use, and more accessible than subtractive manufacturing methods — which are more complicated and expensive to operate. Investing in additive manufacturing can greatly improve efficiency and agility while minimizing supply chain risk, while its automated processes reduce the need for specialized labor. Additive manufacturing is also efficient: you build only what you need to, and nothing more.

Printers such as the FX20 open up a wide range of new capabilities and applications for 3D printing.

3D printing has seen widespread use due to these benefits. Additive manufacturing technologies have continued to move forward and several key advancements have been made in recent years. Today, AM solutions are more reliable and effective than ever before. They have a wider range of capabilities and potential applications, and can print parts that address specialized needs.

So, what are these improvements, how do they translate into concrete benefits for manufacturers, and why is now the time for businesses to invest in additive manufacturing? Read this white paper to learn directly from our resident engineers and technical experts here at Markforged.

Distributed manufacturing networks of 3D printers allow organizations to take full control of their supply chains.
