3D printing services allow everyone to participate in 3D printing, including those who don’t have the time, money, or space to invest in their own equipment, but still want to bring their designs to life.
These companies take your design, including your choice of color, filament, size, and so on, and use their own equipment to 3D print your project. When it’s done, they’ll send the completed results back to you so you can enjoy the final product without having to worry about the process itself.
Advantages of Using a 3D Printing Service
- First of all, it’s cheaper, especially if you don’t need to 3D print frequently. Desktop 3D printers cost in the hundreds of dollars for a lower-priced model, and that doesn’t include the additional investments in filaments or printer accessories. Middle-range and industrial 3D printing equipment costs even more.
- You’ll get access to filaments and processes that would be out of your reach if you had to buy them for your own setup. By only paying for one print with a tricky metal mixture filament such as copper, for instance, you’ll pay a fraction of the price you would if you were to buy a full roll of filament and a 3D printer capable of printing metal (or modifying your own machine to do so).
- You can benefit from expertise when working with complicated projects. If you want the effects of working with a filament or process with which you have little to no experience, it’s not a bad idea to use a service. .
The possibilities of 3D printing are simply astounding. Just the idea of turning a 3D model into a real-world object...
