An article in Computerworld magazine explains how 3D printers are developing rapidly and offer plentiful opportunities both for the production and manufacturing industries. PA explains the potential, this technology offers designers and engineers who can use 3D printers to instantly create prototypes.

PA explains: “In the 1980s local print shops began to emerge in response to the rise of laser printers, and the same thing is happening today with 3D printers.”

PA goes on to reveal that 3D printers play a vital role in innovation, by helping Danish companies to combine design and knowledge with the production of raw material and prototypes.

“Innovation is about making entirely new products, rather than just copying existing products,” says Søren. He cites crowd-funding site Kickstarter, which details various projects, which show how to construct cost-effective 3D printers and machines “We need to localise our production,”  PA concludes, “as this will allow us to go to market much faster”.
