#3Dprinting has altered the entire design process. > 3D Printing's Larger Role Pushes Changes

The expansion of 3D printing in recent years has altered the design process. Design software vendors are bringing together the stages of design for 3D products -- optimization of weight and structure, testing of stress, 3D printability, and cost estimates -- and folding these programs into the CAD platform to create a one-stop for 3D part design and production design. This integration of CAD and 3D printing speeds the process and helps design engineers create parts that were not possible before. 3D printing has thus become an actual manufacturing process for low-volume products as well as tooling.
