Certification of individual 3D printed parts require long, complex, and expensive operations. While dealing with large quantities, it would be more realistic to certify the whole manufacturing process, further leading to certification of the parts produced within the process.
At Spare Parts 3D, we apply systematic standard requirements and associated test procedures for 3D printing processes. This way we can hedge risks and ensure the same levels of fidelity that are seen in conventional processes (casting, forging, machining).

IDC forecasted the worldwide spending on 3D printing will grow to nearly $29B in 2020. Sculpteo illustrated the same trend in its 2017 State of 3D Printing.

As 3D printing technology matures, Electrolux is working with Spare Parts 3D to leverage on the advantages of 3D printing as a way of reducing inventory.
