Can 3D printing be used for end-use products?
Why 3D printing?
3D printing offers the ability to imagine a product design and its qualities, as well as rapidly bring to it life as a physical object. 3D printing frees designers from the limitations of traditional product manufacturing techniques and allows wider possibilities in product design and functionality
Efficiency is a major theme in 3D printing. It is expressed in minimizing material waste, unlike other commonly used technologies, such as CNC, which can be extremely wasteful. Besides, 3D printing is more time-efficient in preparation and maintenance, than for example, injection molding.
