But the sobering reality is that no matter how perfectly manufacturing steps are followed cost is always being designed into the part—every pocket cut, every hole drilled comes with a price in material waste, cutter wear, and machine time. With 3D printing, engineers can design cost out of a part when adding features while eliminating extraneous material and additional assembly steps. Design cost out by increasing part complexity.
