Original Title: 3D Printing: Recht, Wirtschaft und Technik des industriellen 3D-Drucks

Leupold/Glossner (presently available only in the German language)

Industrial 3D Printing is picking up speed. In the meantime additive manufacturing has not only been put into practice in many industries, it is also seen as a guarantor for the future. Experts from the industry, e.g. from companies such as Airbus, Linde AG, Allianz, Deutsche Bahn (German Railway) and voestalpine, as well as experts from the law, research and technology have participated in this manual published by Dr. Andreas Leupold and Silke Glossner, in order to provide the readers with a practical and well-founded overview of industrial 3D printing. The foreword to the book has been written by the internationally recognized 3D printing expert and consultant, Terry Wohlers from Wohlers Associates, Inc.  The holistic approach to the topic of 3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing ranges from the technical basics via the business and economic challenges to the legal questions that form the focus of the book. Numerous practical examples, diagrams and photos round off the topical presentation.

The lawyer Dr. Andreas Leupold is a founding member and member of the supervisory council of the industry network Mobility goes Additive and has received several awards for 3D Printing & Law. The judge at the District Court of Munich Silke Glossner has many years of experience in deciding commercial disputes and is active in the area of initial and further training for the judiciary. Both editing publishers are also the authors of the guide 3D-Druck, Additive Fertigung und Rapid Manufacturing (3D Printing, Additive Manufacturing and Rapid Manufacturing) and editing publishers/authors of the lawyer’s IT Manual Münchener Anwaltshandbuches IT-Recht.

This work about the law, business and technology of 3D printing is intended for CEOs, entrepreneurs, divisional directors and managers, in-house counsels and legal departments, lawyers and business economists and all readers who want to deal with or explore the different facets of industrial 3D printing.
