Design engineers need a scalable network of small 3D printers

Design engineers need a scalable network of small 3D printers
3D printing is already revolutionising the world of design engineering and manufacturing, from aerospace through to the automotive and medical industries. Yet many UK companies, especially small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs), are still reluctant to adopt this technology, often due to cost. This is where scalability comes in. Here Chris Elsworthy, MD and Lead Mechanical Engineer, CEL-UK explains why a scalable network of small 3D printers is what today's design engineers need.
