RAPID DESIGN ITERATION
Leveraging on 3D Printing technology, engineers we can quickly create functional prototypes of various designs.
These prototypes can then be tested for various structural, functional and material properties. Based on the results, modifications to the designs can be made.
3D printing has significantly reduced time to create prototypes of automotive parts, enabling rapid iterative design process.
SPARE PARTS AVAILABILITY
Stocking right amount of spares has become a major cost component for manufacturers. And, life cycle of automotive parts is shortened as a result of shorter time-to-market strategy.
With 3D printing, automotive parts manufacturers can maintain a digital repository of all spare parts and print them as and when required.
Manufacturers can now offer products support for a longer period of time thus increase product life cycle.
