Q&A: @ProtoLabs' Rob Bodor Talks Additive Manufacturing

In April 2014, we acquired FineLine Prototyping Inc., which offered stereolithography, selective laser sintering, and direct metal laser sintering, which are three additive-manufacturing technologies that extended our existing suite of molding and machining processes. Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, often times fits in the early stage of the product development process, and is capable of creating finely detailed prototypes in small volumes. But with a process like DMLS, which builds fully dense metal parts, additive is also being increasingly used for low quantities of end-use production parts. We understand the important role that additive technologies play in the manufacturing industry and product development, and will continue to invest in expanding our capabilities on this front.
