The world is full of challenges and problems that need to be solved. Oftentimes, many issues get completely overlooked due to the market size being relatively small in comparison to the rest of the world. These marginalized issues are left without solutions, but with the advent of 3D printing, we have an opportunity to solve many of these issues.

To finish out the capstone course, let's look back a bit at the hardware course and consider some implications of your design and printing process. Even the best designs may be difficult to implement if print speeds are not appropriate for the throughput needed, or if material properties are not able to match the requirements of the application. Let's look closer at assessing these options in 3D printing.
