This FLASH report:
Examines how new, standardized software from Lawrence Livermore Labs will spur increased use of powder metals in 3D printing, which by 2021 could drive growth to as much as $2.1 billion. While still a small fraction of the global manufacturing market, this figure is more than twice the level that could be expected without the software.
Provides discussion covering novel liquid metal printing approaches
