In recent years, 3D printers have set off a storm in the manufacturing industry. From cars to computer parts, products made by 3D printers undoubtedly play an important role in the lives of many people today. 3D printing is the process of making 3D products with digital drawing. The 3D printer achieves this through a process called "add-on manufacturing". Compared with CNC processing using subtraction method, adding material will be added layer by layer until the product is finished. The use of 3D printers has many benefits for large businesses and individuals. With its continuous development, 3D printers are bound to play an important role in everyday life for everyone in the future.
3D printing technology can bring you complex and interesting designs.
One of the greatest advantages of a 3D printer is that it reduces the time required to create a product. Before the large-scale production of 3D printers, the R&D team must produce several prototypes before mass production. Now, a prototype can be built with a 3D printer and can be easily updated in a computer to print again. Complex designs can be uploaded from a CAD model and printed in a few hours. Its advantage is the rapid verification and development of design ideas. It used to take months and now it's much less.
Low manufacturing cost
From purchasing to printing, the whole process is very cost-effective. Material prices for 3D printers tend to vary, but in most cases they are quite cheap. Compared with traditional manufacturing, the manufacturing cost of low-yield augmented materials is very competitive. It is much cheaper than other alternative manufacturing methods (such as injection moulding) for the production of prototypes that verify shape and fit, and is often competitive in the manufacture of disposable functional components. With the increase of production, traditional manufacturing technology becomes more cost-effective, and mass production proves the rationality of high installation cost.
Using a 3D printer can reduce the risks in the production process. Even if manufacturers do not plan to mass-produce parts with 3D printers, they are still useful in other ways. 3D printers can print prototypes in advance before you involve other devices, such as CNC processing or traditional machines. This helps to build confidence in existing designs while reducing risks.

3D Hub and 3D Printing Service
The ownership of 3D printers has grown to the point where only a few companies do not have the technology. Even though 3D printers are easier to use than ever, some companies are unable to buy them for various reasons. 3D printing services, such as 3D hubs, provide an alternative to having a 3D printer. 3D Hub Company is a professional manufacturer of CNC processing and 3D printing components. Founded in 2013, 3D Printing Services has produced and transported more than 3 million parts worldwide. This process is fast, simple and economical.
