3D printing has existed for years. Thanks to designers and enthusiasts, who have kept creating unique prototypes, it has been able to endure over time.
However, it has taken longer for metal objects printing to progress due to the high costs.
Nowadays, prices have been progressively reduced and this kind of production process has become a very practical way of manufacturing all type of objects. It has not been implemented in the industry just yet, but it means a true revolution for manufacturers.
The main advantage of 3D printing is that there is no need to produce large amounts to cover the production costs. For this reason, this technology will prevent manufactures from keeping huge stocks.
In this sense, there will be a wider variety of products and the production will be more flexible and customized for each client.
Besides, by using this technology we can make lighter and stronger pieces, creating shapes impossible to make with the traditional approach.
