A product is only as good as the applied production technique allows it to be. In complex environments like the automation industry, your gripper design will be limited by the boundaries of existing techniques. This affects the way your final concept is conceived and how it performs. 3D Printing eliminates those restrictions so you can focus on the optimal functional design, and thus, a better product.
