Why 3d printing is 'hot new technology'


Nottingham is fast becoming a national centre for 3D printing, says a university spin-out company that has moved into its own office.

Added Scientific, which was set up by University of Nottingham academics, has taken on its first employees after opening a base at Nottingham Science Park.

The company hopes to grow the business by working with clients in defence, pharmaceutical, automotive and aerospace markets to implement 3D printing – also known as additive manufacturing – in product creation.

It also hopes to collaborate with similar companies in the city, which include Xaar – the global printing firm that recently moved into the science park – Beeston-based Metron Advanced Equipment and Attenborough Dental, in Hockley.
