Get Advice On The Right
3D Printer For Your Business





Choosing the right 3D Printer for your business?

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 new acronyms appearing every week and the industry rapidly evolving it can be difficult to understand the technology, systems, materials, mechanical properties and surface finishes and which methodology is going to work best for you. Below we list some typical questions you will need to think about:

What is the Maximum size I will need to print?

Printers come in all shapes & sizes. One of the first questions you should ask yourself is, what is the largest part i will need to print” and “am i happy gluing smaller parts together?” Our printers have varying build volumes from a 200mm cube to a full 1m cube and getting this right will save you money & time.

My product needs specific mechanical properties.

The 3D Printing industry is moving at an ever-increasing pace, but the biggest strides are being made with a variety of materials now available. Will you part need to withstand a load, withstand high temperatures, work in an abrasive environment, withstand UV light, or is it just a quick prototype to test the aesthetics? From everyday PLA to Continuous Carbon Fibre or even Metal printing we can advise you on the best material & technology for your needs.

My part needs to be highly detailed.

The surface finish on 3D Printed parts is getting better with every new generation of printers & the advances being made with material science. Typically SLA (Stereolithography) produces a better, most consistent finish than FDM but this comes at a slightly higher cost with materials. FDM printers are good enough for most applications these days but for an “injection moulded” look & feel, SLA is your go-to technology.

What is the lifetime cost of a 3D Printer?

Typically a 3D printer is costed over a 3 year period. The ROI (return on Investment) can vary depending upon the application but it’s not uncommon to see a 3D Printer producing production parts pay for itself within 3 months. If you are currently outsourcing 3D Printing, want to check fit & function, or just rapidly iterate you design without lengthy lead times, 3D Printing is a tool that saves businesses time & money every day.
