So what’s the big deal with 3d printing?

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.
