Many manufacturers enjoy a strong business in replacement parts.  But this often requires a warehouse full of ready-made replacement parts available to be shipped to customers or the ability to quickly make custom parts.  Some companies may turn to 3D printing to eliminate the need to store these parts and instead allow them to make parts on demand. Others may decide to get out the manufacturing business altogether and directly license to their customers the ability to 3D print their parts.  Customers may be interested in taking on this role (to save on time and shipping costs), but will likely still wish to enjoy the manufacturer’s warranty and maintain service agreements.  Many manufacturers enjoy a strong business in replacement parts.  But this often requires a warehouse full of ready-made replacement parts available to be shipped to customers or the ability to quickly make custom parts.  Some companies may turn to 3D printing to eliminate the need to store these parts and instead allow them to make parts on demand.
