ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the use of 3D and its role in the computer-aided design (CAD) sector. It states that the several consumer goods industries have already used 3D printing technologies and reported many good benefits of it. It notes that having the 3D model will allow the marketing people to have end-user's experience before the production of the product.
