This is a Book about Industrial 3D-Printing

The book The Rise of Industrial 3D-Printing explains the industrial and business use of 3D-Printing and Additive Manufacturing. While there are many sources describing 3D-Printing and Additive Manufacturing from a technology standpoint, this book describes the technologies and their use from a business and strategy perspective.

The book describes the benefits and disadvantages of Industrial 3D-Printing and explains how the technologies have advanced from their stronghold in rapid prototyping to becoming a production, manufacturing and business solution with the potential to disrupt existing business models and incumbents and empower new ones. The book provides a range of case studies that clearly describe how companies across various industries and sectors use these digital-to-physical production and manufacturing technologies to enhance their operations, value proposition and strategies. From providing descriptions and case studies the book proceeds to explain why Industrial 3D-Printing is likely to grow in adoption and use, and why the technologies are being described and considered disruptive and game changing.

The Rise of Industrial 3D-Printing has been written to be a starting point for business owners, investors, managers and decision makers interested in understanding the value and opportunities that Industrial 3D-Printing provides, not only in the future but also what is possible here and now.
