There is increasing focus on design and functionality of products because of additive manufacturing. The process works independently of other tools or devices, enabling us to execute completely new designs that were previously impossible or difficult to implement. There are basically no limits to creativity.
Prototypes and products can be produced more quickly and cost-effectively with the use of additive manufacturing. Compared to other production techniques, additional work steps can be dispensed with. Moreover, depending on the material used, the products are often lighter, more resilient and more durable than the traditional counterparts.
