Why it is a Big Year for 3D Printing at IMTS 2014 [Video]

"We're making the amazing practical," quips ExOne COO and President Dave Burns.

In this exclusive interview Burns explains why 2014 is a big year for 3D printing at IMTS. He notes that while the adaptation phase from traditional manufacturing to 3D printing is taking off this year, he expects it to be a long and rigorous process.

Ultimately, he expects to see 3D printing become a component of industrial manufacturing, not a replacement for it -- and making "production quality and production cost" parts and products alongside traditional technologies.
