Additive Manufacturing technologies offer high potential for a sustainable change of supply chains. This paper shows how customers can realize so called Make-by-Cus tomer-Supply Chains based on 3D-printing technology.

Thus different types of new business models emerge, that could lead to increasing customer loyalty.
