The Promise and Perils of 3D Printing

By Jeff De Turris  |  August 25, 2014

“Will 3D printers change the world?” Recently, the New York Times offered a range of views in response to that question, including those of an economist, an engineer, and a set designer. If you’re looking for an insurance perspective, you should read the new ISO white paper, The Promise and Perils of 3D Printing. The paper discusses: - several methods and uses of 3D printing - potential insurance risks and exposures of 3D printing on the insurance industry and global markets - potential effects of 3D printing on the social, health and legislative environment in the United States and around the world Take a moment to download a free copy of the white paper.
