3D printing – the additive fabrication of objects by depositing and patterning successive layers of material – has been touted as an enabling platform for applications ranging from lighter, more efficient aircraft and advanced prosthetics to homemade firearms and lab-grown organs. Anthony Vicari, Research Associate at Lux Research, provides this brief report on performance improvements in this space and why additional research and development is needed for these processes to reach commercial maturity.

Additive Manufacturing has been in place in one form or another for the past three decades and is increasingly becoming a part of the literal fabric of many of the world's core industries. In this interview, we look at the space industry in particular and the benefits that additive manufacturing can have in this sector and potentially the wider manufacturing fold.
Last year Robert Ghobrial, LM Technical Fellow – Production Operations Rotary & Mission Systems, Lockheed Martin gave a presentation on the applications of additive manufacturing in military simulators & trainers.
