A presentation by Robert Martens at the 3D Printing Value Chain Event.

By using 3D printing, items can be designed optimally, removing limitations required by traditional manufacturing techniques. With this disruptive technology, objects can be created in small lots or even single and unique pieces without incurring the substantial extra cost that standard production processes would require.

Because local production in short times is possible, reduced spare parts stocks or special tools are needed, and waiting on long-lead items can be substantially shortened. Uncoupling design and production enables local production leading to the rise of advanced business models and supply chains.
