Three separate software tools from Siemens attempt to control some of the most challenging variables within metal AM: build orientation, distortion and deposition paths. Part of software video series.
These 3D printed flip-flops are an example of mass customization, but they also hint at manufacturing's more sustainable, circular future. Find out why in this episode of The Cool Parts Show.

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.
