Building Growth with Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing — also known as 3-D printing — was developed in the 1980s and began moving beyond costly industrial manufacturing applications in the late 2000s when it was taken up by the open-source and do-it-yourself movements. This collection of articles from MIT Sloan Management Review takes a closer look at this disruptive technology, which is on the verge of going mainstream.
