Additive manufacturing has been rapidly evolving into a powerful production tool. The medical industry has been an early adopter and has been one of the driving forces behind this evolution. To effectively utilize this new (relative to most plastic or metal manufacturing methods) manufacturing method, it is critical to understand and design to the strengths. Whether it be plastic or metal, there are ways to leverage the freedom of complexity afforded by additive to make up for some of current limitations in cost, speed, and material availability.
