Reduce costs and time to market for mass-customized products with nTop's advanced design for additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities.
What is mass customization?
Mass customization aims to create high-quality personalized products. Today, mass customization with additive manufacturing (AM) is creating new opportunities for products that are more comfortable, innovative, and cost effective.
Benefits of mass customization with AM
Mass customization with AM offers a range of benefits across different industries, from improved patient outcomes to safer sports equipment.
Shorten treatment times
Custom 3D-printed surgical guides and implants result in shorter procedure times, which can reduce costs.
Improve patient outcomes
Additively manufactured custom devices offer more effective treatment because they are tailored to the patient’s unique physiology and needs.
Improve athletic equipment
Customized 3D-printed sports equipment can offer better comfort, performance, and safety.
Drive demand with unique products
AM creates new opportunities for one-of-a-kind personalized products, which customers are willing to pay more for.

Industry applications of mass customization
Mass customization with additive manufacturing helps create higher quality, cost-effective products across a variety of industries.
Medical device industry
Mass customization with AM is helping engineers create patient-specific medical devices, like prosthetics and orthotics, that improve patient outcomes.
Additive manufacturing paired with mass customization allows engineers to introduce texturing, text, and foams into their automotive designs to improve the aesthetics of custom accessories and interior and exterior vehicle features.
Consumer products industry
Mass customization with 3D printing empowers engineers to create one-of-a-kind consumer products, like custom footwear and sports equipment, to improve ergonomics and user comfort.
nTop’s critical tools for mass customization with additive manufacturing
Design processes, not just parts. Once you have built your workflow, you can rerun it with new inputs repeatedly and accurately.
Run nTop files through a programmatic environment with different input variables for rapid custom design generation.
Label and logo automation
Effortlessly swap labels and logos. Add serial numbers and other identifying product markings without ever causing errors.
Import 3D scan data into reusable workflows to quickly create products tailored to individuals.
Latticing, digital workflows, and mass customization bring the world’s most advanced prosthetics to the jungles of Guatemala
LifeNabled volunteers used 3D patient scan data to automatically generate prosthetic sockets in nTop. The new digital workflow saves more than three days of work, and it can be replicated anywhere in the world. The resulting prostheses are more breathable, flexible, and comfortable for the patients they serve in Guatemala.
