Francesco Leonardi & Ivan Vecchio, .ZERO
Mass customization, at the technology level, is one of the many opportunities that AM can offer. Of course, the advantage of not having tools or molds in the production stage requires different tools for the design step.
The .ZERO team always has nature as its source of inspiration. Nature is the best proof of how things are never identical. nTop Platform is the key toconnectingt ideas and technologies, to turn the opportunity of mass customization into a real advantage.
