At weshape we believe in sustainability and efficiency in our business model. Therefore, we have implemented an "on demand" production method, where we 3D print all orders as needed. This means that we do not need to maintain large inventories, and at the same time it is a more environmentally friendly way of production.
What is 3D printing?
3D printing is a technology that enables the production of three-dimensional objects from digital files. It works by building the object layer by layer, using a 3D printer that melts and extrudes plastic or other materials.
What are the benefits of 3D printing?
3D printing has several advantages compared to traditional production methods. First of all, it is a very flexible and versatile method that allows the production of unique and complex shapes that cannot be achieved with traditional production methods. In addition, 3D printing can be done locally and on demand, which means it can reduce transport costs and CO2 emissions.
How does "on demand" production work?
"on demand" production means that we do not produce our goods until a customer orders them. Once an order has been placed, we print the product on a 3D printer and send it directly to the customer. In this way, we can avoid having large stocks, thus reducing our costs and minimizing waste.
What are the advantages of "on demand" production?
The biggest advantage of "on demand" production is that we only produce the goods that are actually ordered. This means that we can avoid having large inventories, thus avoiding the financial costs and environmental waste associated with having to store and handle large quantities of finished products. In addition, we can quickly produce and ship orders, which means that our customers can receive their goods faster.
How can "on demand" production help the environment?
"On demand" production can help the environment in several ways. First of all, it can reduce waste and overproduction, which is a major source of waste and CO2 emissions. In addition, it can reduce transport costs and CO2 emissions, as the goods are produced closer to the customer and do not have to be transported over long distances.
