Elias Stahl shared from his experience scaling 3D printed footwear lines for the industry and discusses pathways for your own business to grow. In the first wave of 3D-printing about a decade ago, the technology was able to scale successfully for applications that could be directly translated from traditional to digital manufacturing – the “low hanging fruit” like aerospace and dental was ready for it. In the second wave underway right now, new tools and approaches for product design and engineering are unlocking new applications for additive manufacturing at scale.
