Exploiting the potential of additive manufacturing: with optimal engineering

Design of 3D printed parts

Additive manufacturing offers several advantages if the potential is optimally exploited. Most importantly, the design and engineering of 3D printed parts must take advantage of additive manufacturing technology. Simply manufacturing a conventional part 1:1 additively rarely yields benefits (unless it's for spare parts that are no longer available or when there are supply issues).
