Is buying a 3D printer worth it for you?
3D printing is booming and widely used but it’s just not worth it for everyone. Although the opportunities seem to be endless. Looking for 3D Printers to start off your projects?
What is 3D printing and how does it work?
A 3D printer is a printer that creates a three dimensional object layer-by-layer using a computer created design.
Are you a maker?
Essentially, 3D printers become another tool that a maker uses, allowing you to quickly test and fix parts.
What are the Pros of 3D Printing?
- Flexible design
3D printing allows for the design and print of more complex designs then traditional manufacturing.
- Print on demand
Your 3D printer can manufacture parts within hours, this allows for each stage to complete faster.
- Strong and lightweight parts
The main 3D printing material is plastic, although some metals can also be used. However, plastics offer way more advantages as they are lighter. You can’t print objects without its printing material, filaments. We offer an extended range to suit your needs.
- Minimising waste
Producing parts only required the needed materials for the part itself, with little or almost no waste. Compared to other methods which are cut from non-recyclable materials.
- Cost effective
3D Printing saves time and therefore costs while others use different machines for manufacturing. You can setup your 3D printer and leave it behind whilst printing your objects.
- Environmentally friendly
As this technology reduces the amount of material wastage used this process is inherently environmentally friendly.
