Get Advice On The Right 3D Printer For Your Business
Which is the right printer for you?
Whether this is your first foray into 3D Printing, or if you are a 3D Printing veteran, choosing the right printer for your requirements can be a daunting task. With acronyms seemingly appearing every week and the industry rapidly moving forward it can be difficult to understand the technology and which is going to be best for you. On the right we have asked some typical questions you will need to think about:
What is the maximum size you will need to 3D Print?
3D Printers come in all shapes and sizes, from 500mm cubes to 1m cubes. Thinking about the maximum size of what you are likely to need to print over the life of the printer may save you having to make another purchase further down the road.
Does your product need specific mechanical properties?
Over the last 5 years, 3D Printing has moved on rapidly, but more significantly so have the materials you can now print with. Gone are the days of just producing prototypes, you can now produce functional parts, with the mechanical properties needed for end use design.
Do you need high detail finished items?
What is the surface finish of the parts you need? If you need a part to have the appearance of an injection moulded part you may want to look at Resin printing. If the finish is of lesser importance, traditional FDM might be a better solution.
Lifetime costs of the printer
3D Printers are typically costed on an ROI (Return On Investment) over a 3 year period. The maintenance, support, warranty & ongoing costs of consumables, like resins, tanks, filaments & build plate should be a consideration when you choose which is the best fit for your project.
