3D Printers and 3D Printing

Already near 150 companies around the world produced and sold industrial additive manufacturing (AM) systems in 2017, up from 97 companies in 2016. New system manufacturers are entering the AM market at a dizzying pace while releasing machines with open material platforms, faster print speeds, and lower pricing.
3D printing technology decreases production time by 60%-70% and reduces costs by 70-80%.

While 3D printing has been possible since the 1980s, it has been primarily used for large scale industrial purposes. However, in recent years, 3D printers have become much cheaper and are now available also to the consumer market, and they are produced also to stock, not only to order.

Such serial manufacturing needs a production planning system, which is suitable for complex electronic devices, as a 3D printer is.
