5. 3D modelling and printing in a craft field – conclusions

Reconsidering the diagram in Lesson 2 of this Module, we can analyze where the use of 3D modeling and 3D printing intervene bringing benefits:

What emerges, is that the introduction of these technologies is not only marginal but influences the entire production process with effects that can not be neglected. The resulting benefits can have a huge impact, allowing production strategies once unthinkable.

If we consider all this associated with other connected phenomena and in the course of work such as the diffusion of networks and wifi, the internet of things and the sharing of data increasingly integrated into society, it is conceivable that the computerization of the handicraft will be an increasingly strategic component in the field, becoming the means of the success or failure of a productive activity.
