What is the 3D Printing & Rapid Prototyping Services Industry?

Companies in this industry offer 3D printing and rapid prototyping, which is the automatic construction of physical objects using additive manufacturing technology. The competing technologies in the marketplace are differentiated by the way layers are built to create parts. Some melt or soften material to produce layers, while others lay liquid material thermosets that are cured. In the case of lamination systems, thin layers are cut to shape and then joined together.
