Charlottesville, Virginia:  SmarTech Publishing (, the leading industry analyst firm covering the 3D printing/additive manufacturing sector, has just announced the schedule for its new “Complete Guide” series of reports aimed at production managers and other concerned with the practical implementation of 3D printing in their businesses and workplaces.

Each of the reports in the “Complete Guide” series covers a different aspect of 3D printing/additive manufacturing.  For example, the first report “The Production Manager’s Complete Guide to:  3D Printing with Metals” – which has already been published – is a detailed monograph on 3D printing with metals, one of the hottest topics in the 3DP community.  The next two reports in the series will cover (1) prototyping using today’s low-cost 3D printers and (2) how to select between the many kinds of additive manufacturing technologies that are currently available.

Publication Schedule

Today SmarTech Publishing is announcing its full list of titles until next spring.  These are as follows:

Guides for Success

Over the next decade, the implementation of additive manufacturing will be in the vanguard of the transition from traditional manufacturing to advanced manufacturing based on digital technology. Understanding the advantages and challenges that AM will present, and how to optimize the deployment of 3DP will become vital to those who need to take full advantage of the digital manufacturing revolution.

SmarTech Publishing’s series of Complete Guides provides accessible entry points into the world of additive manufacturing:

  • The Complete Guides focus specifically on the requirements and practical aspects of implementing 3D printing/additive manufacturing including providing direction on equipment and technology choice, process integration and materials selection
  • They seek to simplify the decision process and obtain the best production results, limiting trial and error implementation of additive manufacturing to a minimum.  Our Guides also help make the decision whether additive manufacturing can serve the reader as just an approach to functional prototyping or is well suited to making tools and for actual short-run production?

The readers of these Complete Guides will discover what additive manufacturing can offer in terms of size, speed, costs, production capabilities and automation.
