Today we continue our series on 3D printing and the Supply Chain and how it impacts logistics. In the first post in the series, we gave a high level of the outlook on the burgeoning technology of 3D printing and the supply chain and logistics implications. Today we will really go further into this impact to manufacturing and consequently on supply chains.
