Why is looking at the complete 3D Printing Value Chain much more important than looking at a 3D Printer alone?

value chain

So far, the emphasis of the 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing industry has been predominantly on the 3D Printer technology and not on the Value Chain. 3D Printers should be faster, smaller, etc. However, the design phase, the materials and post-processing are equally or even more important. And if one wants to grow towards manufacturing, the integration of 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing in the ‘traditional’ factory is essential as well.
