With applications in Automotive, Aerospace, Electronics, and other industries such as Oil & Gas, and Marine Engineering, 3D printing is transforming the engineering business. Engineers and product designers can quickly prototype their ideas thanks to 3D printing, which saves time and money at every level of product development.
Automotive companies come up with new designs and models often to compete in the market. 3D printing helps in rapidly prototyping the designs and also in the manufacturing of automotive parts, fixtures, jigs. The 3D automotive parts look aesthetically attractive and it also helps in saving the in-house production time and cost. It also enables the manufacturers to customize and personalize automotive elements according to the end-user requirements.
