Perspective: Continued Adoption of 3D Printing in the Manufacturing Industry

This IDC Manufacturing Insights Perspective identifies trends and announcements impacting the adoption of 3D printing in the manufacturing industry.

Manufacturers should begin to experiment with 3D printing to identify how it can yield business benefits such as increased productivity and customer centricity.
