Are you ready for the 3D printing revolution?

The term disruption is often viewed negatively. But “disruption” combined with innovation is often what’s needed to take something to the next level. The Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation (MAP) says that disruptive innovation in manufacturing has created a new normal for manufacturers.

So, is this disruption a good thing? Well if you’re a manufacturer and you’re looking to reduce costs, decrease waste and/or increase productivity, it’s a good thing. Thanks to cloud-based computing and the Internet of Things (IoT), we are all better connected with each other and our devices. What’s this mean for manufacturing? It means “IoT has the power to transform manufacturing by changing the types of products companies will make and how they will be made, all while reducing costs.

Disruptive technologies are good for business,” according to information industry analyst Steve Beard.
