Additive manufacturing is upending traditional manufacturing processes, and unlocking a host of new capabilities. In addition to being able to design and produce lighter and more complex parts and products, companies can also potentially save costs throughout the manufacturing value chain using 3D printing.

In its new white paper, “5 Ways to Stop Wasting Money on Production Processes,” Ultimaker explains how fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing can improve cost efficiency.

Written by Ultimaker’s in-house 3D printing experts, the new guide explains how 3D printing removes hurdles that can drive up production costs. Those cost savings can come via accelerating design validation through faster production of prototypes and initial modeling; by enabling companies to produce tooling quickly and easily in-house; and by improving manufacturing scalability to meet shifting demand.

To illustrate the potential savings, Ultimaker has included a variety of use cases, including 3D printing applications in use at Ford Motor Company, the Royal Netherlands Air Force, Sylatech, and Florenradica.
