Insider Q&A: 3D Printing End Use Parts

In this Insider Q&A, the experts at Ultimaker explain how 3D printing can be used for spare parts, jigs and fixtures in a production environment.

After years of primarily being used to create prototypes and models, 3D printing technology is increasingly proving its worth for the production of end use parts across a wide variety of industries.

One important application for the technology has been the creation of spare parts, jigs and fixtures in a production environment. There is a high cost associated with maintaining an inventory of these parts for equipment that may be in service for years or even decades. 3D printing allows companies to create these parts on demand.

We asked the experts at Ultimaker how their 3D printers are used to create end use parts. In this Insider Q&A, see how Ultimaker customers are leveraging 3D printing to improve their manufacturing operations.
