Additive manufacturing, more popularly known as 3D printing, has captured the imagination of many, with the possibility of starting a manufacturing revolution.  In recent years, 3D printer prices have dropped substantially, and a wide variety of printable materials is available, with new materials constantly in development.  3D printing is being used in many more applications than most people realize.  We are on the cusp of a manufacturing revolution that affects so many different industries already.  This presentation will provide an overview of the current 3D printing market landscape, including technologies, players, and industries where 3D printing is already a success.  Perhaps the most exciting thing about 3D printing is how it opens up new and better ways of designing and manufacturing objects.  Its true potential is as a complementary technology to other manufacturing methods, ushering in new mass custom product possibilities.
