3D Printing: The Rise of the Prosumer
By Rachel Gordon, Technology Analyst, IDTechEx
Space is limited - if you have not already done so reserve your seat today!
We are still a long way from a 3D printer in every home. Desktop 3D printers are too slow, unreliable, frustrating, difficult to design for and just not useful enough for anyone who's not a keen maker.
There has been a distinction between "hobbyist" and "industrial" machines, but IDTechEx research shows over 50% of the 375,000 desktop thermoplastic extruders sold during 2015 were bought by businesses.
These desktop machines are finding increasing uses by designers, in engineering firms, by innovating small businesses and by large companies evaluating the usefulness before launching in to buy a million dollar machine.
This webinar, which draws on research from IDTechEx reports 3D Printing 2016-2026: Technologies, Markets, Players and 3D Printing Materials 2016-2026: Status, Opportunities, Market Forecasts will discuss:
•Case studies of businesses using these machines across a variety of industries
•The business model of parallel manufacturing using a number of smaller machines versus one bigger industrial printer
•Examples of the most successful desktop 3D printers
•The remaining hurdles to adoption and the space for improvement
We will be holding exactly the same webinar twice in one day. Please register for whichever session is most convenient for you.
