3D printing is a technique to create 3D objects by placing layer over layer with the help of an additive material and a digital file (CAD). Initially, these models were limited to prototyping purpose but recently 3D printing has made a radical shift towards mainstream product manufacturing in industries ranging from aerospace to consumer products. Stereo Lithography (SLA) is the most primitive method for creating prototypes in order to find the possibility of a design before investing in its manufacturing. Since then, many technologies have evolved such as Laser Sintering (LS), Electron Beam Melting (EBM), Fused Disposition Modeling (FDM), Laminated Object manufacturing (LOM), and others. 

These continuous technological developments have helped 3D printing to move towards mainstream industrial manufacturing. Moreover, the benefits provided by this techniques with regards to the traditional manufacturing methods (injection molding, CNC machining, vacuum casting) have made it a more favorable, quicker, and less expensive option for manufacturers, worldwide. 3D printing has a huge growth potential, especially, in markets that are characterized by low volume, complex architecture and highly individualized applications.

The main driving factors responsible for the explosive growth of the 3D printing market include new and improved technologies, variety of materials ranging from polymers to living tissue, supportive regulations, government funding, and huge untapped market. Among all the application sectors, automotive industry, consumer products, aerospace, and healthcare have contributed the largest market share. Moreover, aerospace and healthcare are estimated to grow exponentially in the coming future.

In geographical analysis of the 3D printing market with regards to the 3D printers, materials and related services-the Americas have been accounting for the largest market share followed by Europe. However, Europe and APAC are expected to be the fastest growing market in the coming future. Supportive government policies, increased financial investments by governments, and huge R&D activities are the major reasons behind this tremendous growth. Some of the major players in the 3D printing market include 3D Systems (U.S.), Stratasys (U.S.), ExOne (U.S.), Arcam (Sweden),Optomec (U.S.), EnvisionTEC (Germany), EOS (Germany), Layerwise (Belgium), microTEC (Germany), and Materialise (Belgium), among others.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
