AM video series: What is the next big thing for additive manufacturing?

Knowledge of the ‘next big thing’ for any industry is keenly sought-after, and this was something many people wanted to discover about additive manufacturing at the Formnext event last year. Would it be AI-driven automation, reducing the need for expertise and democratising access to the technology? Or how about concepts such as 3D printing of buildings, or living tissue? All of these incredible technologies are on the rise and contribute to making AM such an exciting industry.

Hexagon’s stand at Formnext was a key opportunity to showcase our smart end-to-end solutions for additive manufacturing, and launch the ‘I AM’ campaign for Industrialising Additive Manufacturing. On the stand, we took time to speak with industry experts to discuss trends and try to pinpoint the elusive ‘next big thing’. Check out the video below to hear from thought-leaders including Daniel Stadlmayr of CADS Additive and Hexagon’s Mathieu Pérennou.

We have also published a new whitepaper which provides a clear snapshot of where AM is right now and where it can be taken next with the introduction of smart manufacturing technology. Download it here and discover how Hexagon’s solutions can transform the industry and your manufacturing.
