Castor, an industrial 3D printing software company, has released new research that indicates manufacturers can reduce carbon emissions through additive manufacturing (AM), showing that more than one-third of 3D printed parts can reduce carbon emissions.
The research is based on Castor’s latest addition to its software, a calculator that reveals the amount of CO2 emissions that can potentially be saved by using AM instead of traditional manufacturing.
The report emphasizes the environmental benefits of using AM over traditional manufacturing methods. It highlights different aspects where AM has strong CO2 emissions-saving potential as in complex geometries parts and spare parts that be produced on demand.
