About this book

This book provides a thorough overview of the applications of 3D printing technologies to ubiquitous manufacturing (UM). UM itself represents an application of ubiquitous computing in the manufacturing sector, and this book reveals how it offers convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable manufacturing resources, including software tools, equipment, and capabilities. 

Given its scope, the book will be of considerable interest to researchers in the areas of manufacturing, mechanical engineering, operations management, production control, ubiquitous computing, and sensor technologies, as well as practicing managers and engineers.
