The next challenge: Workflow automation of 3D printing

Currently, identification and sorting is done through manual labour. Add one more printer upfront to grow your 3D printing output, add two to three people at the back end to process the additional output.

As labour costs will start to increase the price per part comes under pressure and starts growing, thus, impacting the competitive strength of 3D printing compared to traditional manufacturing technologies. Automation is the way out of this loop.​
