The lump of material that goes into a 3-D printer may turn out to be a powerful weapon against shrinking defense budgets, and against adversaries of the United States. General Chuck Wald (USAF ret.) is former Deputy Commander of United States European Command. He’s now Vice Chairman and Federal Practice Senior Advisor for Deloitte Services. Gen. Wald discussed additive manufacturing, how the US military is using it now, and how it can use it to its fullest potential, on National Defense Week.
