Top 10 3D Printing Solution Companies in Europe - 2019

In the era of technological breakthroughs, 3D printing has grown exorbitantly in terms of applications as well as adoption. 3D printing is a blooming industry that is on the verge of changing manufacturing techniques definitively. With the number of 3D printing players making their foray into this manufacturing paradigm, European purchases of 3D printers, materials, software, and related services have risen drastically. The technology has the potential to democratize the production of goods, from food to medical supplies, to great coral reefs. 3D printing machines have already been making their way into businesses, homes, disaster sites, and even outer space. As the technology grows, it has the possibility to help connect marginalized and difficult-to-reach populations with essential products. All in all, this emerging technology has the potential to revolutionize societies, and transform the development sector. In order for this to happen, this emerging technology needs to get into the hands of development practitioners and stakeholders around the world.

The several stages involved in 3D printing, from concept, to CAD file, to generative design, to the actual 3D print, all represent a point of vulnerability in which a 3D print can be corrupted or even stolen, putting a company’s intellectual property at risk. For the growing need of cybersecurity in 3D printing, 3D print manufactures are looking to adopt blockchain to solve the inherent security risks of the technology.

With numerous innovative 3D printing technologies available out there in the market, business leaders find it extremely arduous to choose a vendor that matches their needs and requirements. In this edition, we have brought you promising 3D Printing vendors who revolutionizing the space with the ir groundbreaking solutions.

We present to you Manufacturing Technology Insights’ “Top 10 3D Printing Solution Providers in Europe - 2019.”
