Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS,volume 128)


Additive manufacturing or 3D printing technology enables building objects using a computer-aided design (CAD) model while successively adding material layer by layer. Recently the number of world’s successfully launched startups based on additive 3D printing process is growing. In this paper we present startup launching in Montenegro based on 3D printing while creating sustainable zero-waste fashion accessories supported by a mobile application that will enable customers to create and order custom-made products.
