(HuffingtonPost)  Four ways 3D printing may render traditional manufacturing obsolete are discussed:
1. Waste prevention: Unlike traditional manufacturing where manufacturers are compelled to overproduce for a variety of reasons, resulting to waste in the long run, 3D printing allows you to produce just the right quantity needed without any loss.
2. Easy prototype production: 3D printing has the flexibility that allows you to jump into production mode almost immediately due to already assembled designs in the computer system.
3. Seamless production: The 3D printed manufacturing process is automated without rigorous manual input as in the case of traditional manufacturing.
4. Mass customization: Customized designs can be printed in large quantities at no extra cost using 3D printing.
