3D printing is used increasingly to manufacture end-use parts. Flexibility offered by 3D printing systems makes it possible to manufacture complex elements in a single manufacturing process in line with the demand. No need to use multiple tools or to schedule manufacturing operations saves time and money. The minimum volume of a manufacturing batch is no longer a constraint. On top of that, professional 3D printing systems offer repeatability and accuracy. Depending on the case, 3D printing-based manufacturing is cost-effective even for a 1,000 item batch.
