3DEO Outperformed CNC Machines in Four Key Areas

Competed (and won) against CNC machines to reach a lower piece price while retaining the ability to seamlessly scale quantities into very high volumes.

Introduced designs rapidly for fast market entry, with the ability to make design improvements and changes without paying the price of tooling costs.

Scaled quantities up/down to match demand; avoided setup and minimum quantity costs with traditional manufacturing.
