This chapter provides a rough overall view of the current state of
additive manufacturing, how the status quo was reached and what the
future looks like, and how these issues are related to the Manufacturing
4.0 context. Chapter focuses on the most developed and studied form of
additive manufacturing—laser based powder bed fusion of metal materials.
Main challenges, possibilities, and technology readiness-level are
presented together with a discussion about the approximate costs related
to manufacturing with the-state-of-the-art systems.
