The Industrial manufacturing industries cover everything from package design, toy manufacturing, sporting goods and consumer electronics. Detailed prototypes, short and medium run manufacturing and tool making are all quickly adopting 3D printing to improve efficiencies. 3D Printing is accelerating the speed of innovation by allowing prototypes to be made in hours rather than weeks or months. As speeds increase there will continue to be increased use of 3D printing as a production method.
3D printing is impacting nearly every market including; medical devices, aerospace, automobile, jewelry, and a wide variety of consumer goods.
