Digital Manufacturing Measurements
Digital fabrication and manufacturing technologies, including additive manufacturing, are increasingly impacting industrial processes in many fields and numerous applications have been developed, varying from automotive to medicine, from security to aerospace. Advocates of these technologies argue that they are claiming a new industrial revolution, which allows mass customization of industrial production, where small quantities of customized products can be built with affordable costs: a new paradigm is arising, enabling a new way to fabricate objects and components with tailored performance. Moreover, the adoption of digital fabrication and digital manufacturing is posing several issues concerning the achievable performance and reliability of new produced systems, components and objects with respect to those fabricated through conventional approaches. Besides deserving the interest of the scientific community, these issues encourage multidisciplinary efforts to better face technological challenges and more easily catch research opportunities.
