Crafting can return crits, which depending on the type of item (mods vs wearable) provides either an extra mat free copy or an augment slot.

Craft a bunch of 31 armorings that use mats worth hundreds of thousands of credits and get a few crits, and you can end up with a substantial profit. It can also be a way to gear yourself, alts and companions for free by trading crafted for mats and / or selling crafted items at mat cost while keeping the crits.

That said, I find for many markets it isn't worth crafting over just selling mats, especially when the only profit is in crits (the items sell for less than the mats and don't move fast or in significant volumes).
