3D Printing is for more than just prototyping. It can also be the best option for mass production. Engineering-grade materials, consistent part quality, quick lead time, and the potential to create complex parts have thrust 3D printing into the decision space for product designers, engineers, and managers. Don’t believe that 3D Printing is up to the production challenge yet? Then step through this story from design into production of a real consumer product that leveraged 3D Printing to its fullest. Hear how success was achieved from three perspectives: Product OEM, Component manufacturer/printer, and 3D technology supplier.
