3D Printing is a term used to describe a range of digital manufacturing technologies. They produce component parts layer-by-layer through the use of materials.
There are many different types of 3D printing processes.

These could then be used and sold. This might have no come back for intellectual property owners. This document presents the second part of the study through a series of case studies and interviews.
