Additive manufacturing has been widely adopted by various manufacturing industries globally with Sweden being on the front line of this new technology. 3D printing is an additive manufacturing process where physical parts are produced from a 3D digital model through the progressive and continuous addition of metal powder or the additive manufacturing material layer by layer. This method of production has been widely adopted in Sweden since it is one of the top producers of metal powder for additive manufacturing. Many companies have opted to integrate 3D printing into their manufacturing process because it is faster and more convenient for rapid prototyping and testing of new product variations. This reduces the time for design and production cycle which ensures fast product development. Many startups have been founded in Sweden to offer reliable 3D printing services to various industries. This article will analyze the top ten companies offering 3D printing services in Sweden.
