IDC PlanScape: 3D Printing

Author: Keith Kmetz
Program Vice President, Imaging, Printing & Document Solutions


This IDC study discusses 3D printers for an organization's production requirements.

"While the transformation of product development is increasingly shifting to a platform of digital processes, the 3D printer is well positioned to serve as the vital piece of this market change. End-user environments, where product development is fundamental to the organization, would be wise to consider the role 3D printing might play in bringing cost and productivity benefits," says Keith Kmetz, program vice president of IDC's Imaging, Printing and Document Solutions research. "This IDC PlanScape is intended to help corporate decision makers gain the insight they need to understand the important role of the 3D printer across the creativity tasks performed at their companies."
