What should manufacturers new to AM know about the technology?

Kristin Mulherin: Manufacturers new to am should know two primary things. While added manufacturing is truly transformational, it will not replace traditional manufacturing rather it's complementary and enables advancements that would not otherwise be possible. One of the biggest hurdles to adoption is the fear, fear being replaced, fear is something new but the more you learn about the opportunities it presents this fear will quickly dissipate. The second thing to know is that there are more 3d printing technologies out there than you realize. There are many technologies each very unique and specific to particular applications. So be sure to educate yourself and determine which technologies make the most sense for your specific needs.
