While Markforged printers are used to optimize processes across the entire manufacturing cycle, they can also be used to directly produce end-use parts. For custom components at low volumes, 3D printing can slash months off of production lead times and massively decrease overhead costs. 3D printing production parts allows you to skip the Tooling Development portion of product development, compressing iteration time and shortening the wait between final design and production parts.
Additive manufacturing also removes many traditional manufacturing limitations, allowing you to eliminate design constraints and prioritize part function. Bypassing these compromises leads to simplified assemblies and improved part performance, all while utilizing less direct labor to produce parts.
