3D Printing: Opportunities, Challenges, and Policy Implications of Additive Manufacturing: Highlights of a Forum
Timothy M. Persons (au)
Additive manufacturing has the potential to fundamentally change the production and distribution of goods. Unlike conventional or subtractive manufacturing processes, such as drilling, which create a part by cutting away material, additive manufacturing builds a part using a layer-by-layer process. The focus of additive manufacturing is now shifting to the direct production of functional parts -- parts that accomplish one or more functions, such as medical implants or aircraft engine parts -- that are ready for distribution and sale. This report presents the highlights of a forum convened on October 15-16, 2014, to discuss the use of additive manufacturing to directly produce functional parts, including its opportunities, key challenges, and key considerations for any policy actions that could affect its future use. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
