According to a recent RSM digital transformation survey, more than one in three manufacturers cite the fast pace of digital change as a major concern regarding digital transformation.

RSM’s national manufacturing leader, Steve Menaker, recently sat down with Vicki Holt, CEO and president at Protolabs, a leading online and technology-enabled quick-turn manufacturer of custom parts for prototyping and low-volume production. In the below video, they discuss 3D printing’s evolving role in the manufacturing industry—how companies are using it today and where the technology is headed.
