As end-users become more involved in personalising designs, Additive Manufacturing has become an enabler to deliver this service through the manipulation of three-dimensional designs using easy-to- use design toolkits. Consequently, end-users are able to fabricate their personalised designs through various types of AM systems. This study employs an experimental method to investigate end-users’ reflections on the value of 3D Printed personalised products based on Product Value and Experiential Value. The results suggest that end-users gave higher value to all measurements for the 3D Printed personalised products. This indicates that 3D Printed personalised products have increased perceived value when compared to standard mass-production counterparts.
