The consequences of such a new manufacturing process far exceed the technical level: additive manufacturing revolutionizes parts management. Traditional manufacturing needs heavy tooling investments and implies little agility, while one 3D printer enables you to produce any part, anytime, and anywhere. You don’t have to maintain centralized production, nor massive warehousing. In addition, as the 3D printed spare part is directly sent from the local manufacturer to the customer, the supply chain is reduced to the last mile section, a change which involves the removal of numerous intermediaries, and the cut of shipment fees. Eventually, 3D printing exempts you from the majority of infrastructure costs, increases your flexibility and responsiveness, and frees up funds for new opportunities.
