3D Printing & the Future Toy Industry

A great quote by Alice Taylor, CEO of tech start-up MakieLab, in an article published on London Loves Business Online:

“The beauty of 3D printing is that it completely does away with the traditional assembly line model. Economies of scale fly out the window; a product is designed, printed, sold or not sold. If it doesn’t sell, the producer can attempt to figure out why before modifying the digital template and having another go. There are no new machines to cut; changes are made digitally first.”
