2017 has been an exciting year for the 3D printing industry, with plenty of new players appearing on the scene, as well as countless new collaborations and innovations. In such a dynamic industry, we would love to be able to simply peer into a crystal ball to see what the future will bring. Unfortunately, we don’t have a crystal ball at Materialise, but we do have many industry experts and visionaries and we’ve asked them to share their predictions for the 3D printing industry in 2018. We’ve bundled their input for you in a list of five trends we anticipate for 2018.
