Some of the differences between traditional manufacturing and additive 3d printing that are key for the FABMOBs|ATMOStag project are:
- complexity, customization and variety are free benefits to objects designed and prototyped using 3d printing.
- 3d additive printing favors low volume, high value production runs.
- There’s zero lead time between the design and fabrication process, and no assembly required of printed objects.
- Also, of particular concern to this project’s environmental activists, additive 3d printing produces less waste for our environment.
