Why bridge manufacturing is good for business
Bridge manufacturing enables smooth transition from prototyping to full-scale production.
Bridge manufacturing solves three major problems businesses face when launching a new product
- Products, at the end of the prototyping stage, have limited or lacking market validation
- Significant tooling expenses are necessary to set up production lines for those unproven products
- Once the production lines are set up, the design can’t be changed without time and resource-intensive retooling
A cluster of 3D printers can perform short-run production with no tooling costs.
An initial series of a product can be used for market validation.
Generation of revenue
Fully-functional 3D printed products can be sold to customers to generate income.
Once one product reaches the mass manufacturing stage, 3D printers can start producing the next one.
