3D printing helps to simplify both manufacturing of a product and material recapture at the end of its usable life. The key is having a plan at the beginning. More in this video, the last in our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
3D printing makes possible new and different consumer goods, but also changes the buyer's relationship to those goods. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
3D printing can support the circular economy by offering an alternative to centralized mass production. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
The circular economy needs the lightweight, optimized and efficient designs that only 3D printing can provide. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
