Today we have a process that can created solid objects from a digital file which we call 3D printing. Layers of materials are created until the required size and dimensions are achieved. To accomplish this process, special 3D printers are used. Today, 3D printing is becoming very popular because people can be as creative as they wish to be and create solid objects they are interested in for a variety of purposes and uses. This type of printing comes with many advantages and that is why people love it.
If you want to bring an idea into reality, you can make it with the minimum amount of time with 3D printing. If you are creating a product for business, you can create it in the fastest time possible since you only think up an idea and come up with a product on the very same day; then produce many and you can start selling it. 3D printing is advantageous to companies since they can stay ahead of the competition with it.
With 3D printing, you can save a lot of money. Money savings come from its ability to make a product prototype without any molding tools and expensive production. Compared with the traditional machining options, the rates of additive manufacturing is definitely lower.
There are lesser risks with a 3D printer even with large investments. With 3D printing, you can easily change or redesign an existing molds and you don’t have to spend much on risks and processes.
In 3D printing, no construction requirement is left to the imagination since it offers clearer communication. It offers the exact representation of the desired product greatly minimizing error with the finished product.
With 3D priting, you can get important feedback from the right groups such as your target audience and business partners before going into full production. In this way, you test the market potential of your product before getting into the production with full force. And this is the stage where you can make improvements based on the feedback before you manufacture many for sale.
With 3D printing, you can physically feel the product. This is not possible to achieve using a picture only or a virtual computer prototype. Since you can hold it, test it, and use it, you can verify the product fit and ergonomics.
3D printing enables customization to fit unique needs. This is very important especially for dental and medical industries or even the fashion and jewelry industries.
You will have a fast time to determine what works and what doesn’t with 3D printers. Changes can be made to any object is a more realistic way and you don’t waste time and resources if it is clear that the idea will not work.
