3D printing is a process where solid objects are created from digital files. In the digital files, the size and dimensions of the object are indicated and the 3D printer is able to product the materials according to these specs. In order to create this solid products, it requires a 3D printer. 3D printers are becoming very useful and important since it allow us to create or make into reality things that are only in our minds. 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. With a 3D printer, you will be able to make your idea into a tangible object in just the same day. 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.
Risks are mitigated especially 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.
There is clearer communication in 3D printing since you don’t any more try to imagine construction requirements. Whatever products you are thinking of manufacturing, you can have an exact representation of it which greatly minimizes error with the finished product.
Using 3 D printing to produce a prototype is advantageous to business since you can get valuable input from your target market or business products about the product you are able to release, before you even do mass production. It is important that you know the market potential of your product before you even go to mass produce your product. And this is the stage where you can make improvements based on the feedback before you manufacture many for sale.
You also get the benefit of being able to hold your prototype in your hands. 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.
With a 3D printer, you can customize and personalize product parts to fit the unique needs. The dental and medical industries including the fashion and jewelry industries will benefit much using 3D printers.
With 3D printers you will not waste time in determining what works and what doesn’t. 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.
