Additive Manufacturing: can we all have products customised
Current industrial systems are designed to produce products in standard shapes and sizes. For example, a shoe can be purchased in size 10 or 11 inches, and in some cases at 10.5 inches, but an exact fit is often hard to achieve. Additive Manufacturing technology has shown an exciting potential for addressing the technical and economic viability of producing custom made products for all.
