In the previous installment in our series on the use of 3D printing in the industrial goods sector, we discussed some general trends, as well as the key manufacturers of directed energy deposition (DED) systems that will continue to play a role in the industry. In this section, we’ll look at the other technologies, with particular focus on metal 3D printing. Whereas DED is ideal for repairing and augmenting parts, PBF is capable of 3D printing intricate geometries. The ability to fabricate parts with complexity at no additional cost enables the design of parts with improved performance and reduced weight and/or size. It also means that complex assemblies made up of multiple par...
