3D printing is just one of the technologies impacting design today, and the capabilities it brings to the product design process cannot be underestimated. Early adopters are already experiencing huge value benefits and the future of product design will most certainly be interlinked with what this technology can bring.
To evolve their design and manufacturing strategies, many industry sectors are already using 3D printing solutions in the market. PwC estimates 67.7 per cent of manufacturers are already using 3D printing. Of these, 28.9 per cent are experimenting to determine how 3D printing can be optimally integrated into their production processes and 24.6 per cent are using 3D printing for prototyping. It is also worth noting that 75 per cent of industrial manufacturing CEO’s say they will make changes to increase R&D and innovation capacity.

Canon (UK) Ltd

In partnership with 3D Systems and Materialise, Canon offers a broad range of 3D printing technology as well as Magic’s file fixing software. We address a wide variety of 3D printing needs, such as concept modelling, functional prototyping, rapid tooling and end-use parts. You can now benefit from best-in-class 3D printing technology and software combined with exceptional service and knowledge from Canon.
