About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of 3D printers, which use additive manufacturing processes to make three-dimensional objects of various shapes and sizes. Buyers generate a virtual design of the desired object, which is then created by the printing machine by laying successive layers of one or more materials. The primary buyers of 3D printers include the aerospace, aviation, dental, architecture, automotive and biomedical industries. This report does not cover industrial printing machines or 3D printing and rapid prototyping services.
