In anticipation for Gordon Nameni’s upcoming speaker event “How to Dissect a Market Opportunity,” we sat down with the BCC Research Senior Editor to learn more about the topics he’ll cover and how your participation in this event will help you make strategic, market-informed decisions.
Chris Spivey, senior editor at BCC Research, offers his take on the future of metal printing technologies with a Q&A from Ric Fulop, CEO and co-founder of Desktop Metal.
I like pretty much every aspect of lasers — insanely fast, can be controlled to ridiculous accuracy and located within a molecule of precision. But laser power typically comes at a high energy cost, and reconfiguring beam control electronics and software is byzantine even by condensed matter physics standards. Although far and above the dominant approach for metal printing, lasers may be more Circean than certain for the future of 3-D metal printing applications.
