The consumer market for additive manufacturing is one of the most varied and visible subsegments of the industry. And while today’s consumer AM applications may just be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to 3D printing’s potential, they are highly indicative of future trends. In this 3dpbm eBook, we take a look at consumer AM applications that are pushing the boundaries and demonstrating that 3D printing is becoming increasingly vital to product innovation.
In our introductory analysis chapter, we provide a comprehensive look at all corners of the consumer AM segment, from footwear, to eyewear, to sportswear and beyond. We also present an exciting case study from German manufacturer OECHSLER and outdoor gear company VAUDE that shows how AM can be used for sustainable product design. This eBook also includes an exploration of the evolution of 3D printed musical instruments, a case study about Sennheiser’s IE 600 earphones, and an exclusive interview with Dr Selassie Dorvlo, Technical Director and Head of AM at Cooksongold about its precious metal 3D printing in the jewelry segment and beyond.
