This IDC study provides a visual representation of the process of technology adoption, dividing technologies into three major categories based on their impact on the organization and assessing their relative maturity within their respective categories. There are more than 20 3D printing technologies that are grouped by the ASTM into seven categories.

"Some of those 20+ technologies are specifically developed to address some of the historical limitations of those technologies," according to Tim Greene, research director in IDC's Hardcopy Solutions Group. "IDC recognizes 11 different 'transformational' technologies that is indicative of the exciting phase that 3D printing is in right now."
