Four Ways 3D Printing is Shaping Product Design and Manufacturing
Product engineers and tooling manufacturers have a lot to gain from 3D printing: By generating low-cost physical prototypes early in the design process, they can check form, fit and function; gauge customer response; and compare design iterations without commitment. It’s even possible to quickly craft production parts, customized for a particular job. And no longer are manufacturing professionals limited by 3D printers that are too big, unfit for the office environment, and prohibitively expensive. Today, affordable, compact, office-friendly units are moving 3D printing to the desktop and dramatically expanding the availability of high-quality prototypes and parts.
