3D metal printing - a form of ‘Additive Manufacturing’ – is a sustainable innovation predicted to revolutionise the manufacturing industry. Despite myriad opportunities afforded by this new technology there are also many challenges that must first be overcome before it becomes widely adopted and the benefits fully realised. This research focused on the challenges facing 3D metal printing in Australia.Qualitative in-depth interviews investigated perceived benefits of 3D metal printing, barriers to uptake and ways to encourage its future adoption. A literature review, in conjunction with the qualitative research findings facilitated development of a conceptual model of 3D metal printing adoption barriers. Subsequent research will seek to verify the conceptual model and quantify the relative importance of the barriers to adoption.
