How 3D Printing will enable the future of Direct Digital Manufacturing
12:30 - 12:55
Direct Digital Manufacturing will be the next manufacturing revolution. The future will include sophisticated manufacturing that is localized thus reducing the complexity of product shipping and excess storage. Time savings plus the reduction of material waste will result in cost savings. This future will be enabled by 3D Printing and Printed Electronics on a single platform and that future is here.
