3D printing and new structures within the retail industry
3D printing in the retail industry will enable you to quickly
create new structures and forms to improve existing
Thanks to the wide choice of materials that we offer such as plastic, resin or our multicolor material, it is possible for you to 3D print your most ambitious projects in not much time and to change it according to your will. In a sector like retail, submit all new ideas mixing traditional materials and 3D printing will help you to significantly stand out from your competitors. For instance, using additive manufacturing when you're a fashion designer becomes more and more common in order to create 3D printing clothing that will shake up retail. You can check the work of Danit Peleg if you want a good example of these innovative 3D designed products.
3D printing allows consumer goods companies to create all kinds of parts in R&D phase to validate a design and get the perfect piece quickly. No need to waste months to create a plastic mold injection to get a traditional manufactured object: in just a few clicks you can raise an impression of your new creations, that's called rapid prototyping.
Customization in the retail industry
In the retail industry, we are often forced to choose among products
offered by retailers. These mass products can be found by everyone
and it is therefore frustrating to have the same objects as thousands
of other people. Selling 3D printed products is a great industry
trend when you want to differentiate yourself from your competitors!
With 3D printing, you can unleash your imagination to create your favorite object, and get products designed to perfectly match your customer's expectations. Indeed, some retailers offer you to fully customize your product from A to Z in order to have a unique item to your image. When you use the 3D printing technology, your imagination is the only limit.
Many retailers will help you to customize your product by integrating various 3D printed details. Once the object is created you can 3D print it easily through our online 3D printing service.
Retailers and 3D printing
Many companies in
the retail industry have turned to 3D printing
to participate in the growth of this sector. These companies
can integrate 3D printing into their business model and
supply chain in different forms. Indeed, 3D printing and
digital manufacturing truly transform retailers. For instance,
businesses can improve customer experience thanks to an
improved retail space.
Their business strategy may also be to develop their own 3D printer inventory. They can create a specific catalog with 3D printable pieces. These can be objects for after-sales service to repair a product for lower cost or pieces in limited series.
They can also offer customized products by developing their own 3D interface. Thanks to that, everyone can create the object of their choice without having any skills in 3D modeling. If you want to create a truly 3D specific product to your needs, we will help you to train on existing software through our various tutorials.
