A typical commercial jetliner contains millions of discrete components, yet provided the plane arrives at its destination safely, on schedule, and hopefully without a screaming baby behind them, most of the flying public could care less how any of those parts were made.

Jabil Inc. (St. Petersburg, FL) said it’s establishing a global network of 3D printing facilities as the company expands its additive manufacturing business.
There will be a lot of success stories coming out soon featuring hybrid additive/subtractive machine technology. Still in its early development stages, hybrid machine technology is carving out—after carefully building up layer by layer—examples of complex parts, large repaired workpieces, and molds with process-enhancing conformal cooling channels designed in.
Additive manufacturing company 3D Systems named Jeffrey A. Graves as its new president and CEO.
The 18-year-old girl came to our clinical practice with a severe challenge: a deformed maxilla, the upper jawbone that also forms part of the nose and eye socket.
HP Inc. said it’s adding new materials and expanding 3D printing services as the company said it's doubling down on additive manufacturing.
EnvisionTEC, a leading global manufacturer of desktop and full-production 3D printers and materials, today launches a groundbreaking new material, E-RigidForm, showcasing it in a 328-foot 3D printed chain.
The pace of 3D printing adoption will accelerate, a General Electric Co. executive said during an address at RAPID + TCT today.
John Deere’s Eric Johnson discusses the company’s additive manufacturing journey—with an eye toward helping small and medium businesses get going in AM.

Finally, Johnson provides tips on unlocking the value of AM for your business in five key applications.
One of the “dirty secrets” of 3D printing is the universal need to take additional steps to render the output usable, including removing the part from its support, curing the part, or improving the surface. Aside from additional cycle time and cost, these steps often require or emit toxic chemicals, necessitating special ventilation and making them unsuitable for a standard office environment. For example, parts built with fused deposition modeling (FDM) must spend about four to eight hours in a heated, agitated sodium hydroxide bath.
