Three-dimensional printing: An image of the future | The Economist   Leave a comment

GE, a large American conglomerate, is now proposing to make ultrasound transducers by “additive” manufacturing—or three-dimensional printing, as it is also known. A new laboratory at the firm’s research centre in Niskayuna, New York, is taking a hard-headed look at the technique, which some see as a fad and others as the future, and working out which products might be made more efficiently by addition rather than subtraction.

Using a 3D printing form of additive manufacturing is setting the stadge to make not inremental , but rather exponential strides in high tech production .

When we think we have reach the limitations in a process , there is another platform that reaches us across a new breach in understanding and knowledge to take us into greater advancements in science, art , medicine , aerospace and more.
