The time of using 3D printing technology, with its completely digitalized workflow, is now. As we sit sequestered by COVID-19, unable to physically attend to manufacturing processes, we can only dream of a 3D printer that would accept a part design in its digital format and produce the part without doubt or question.
A dream for them to be automatic and function unattended, with no machinist. Every manufacturing process that involves a mold, a casting, a sheet metal press, NC machine, milling machine or lathe, depends on a human operator being there. Unless that manufacturing process is considered to be “essential” by governments, business that must go on despite the risk of spreading COVID-19, and humans will be required to […]
