Use 3D printing to align with the latest technological trends
Because in a matter of minutes or days, depending on the object, CAD models can become physical items with the onset of 3D printing. For some business, that’s one of the greatest developments that could’ve happened. Why? Because less material is used than in traditional manufacturing methods. Less time is wasted. Fewer cutting tools — with specific dimensions and purposes — are needed.

The 3D printing process
One of the major benefits of using a 3D printer is its simplicity. The improvement to your company’s product workflow isn’t complex — it’s as simple as purchasing a printer and installing the proper software. When the time comes to create that first object, the initial step is to build the digital prototype through CAD software programs — building your product step by step just like you always have.
But what separates 3D printing from traditional manufacturing processes comes when it’s time to print. 3D printing is also commonly referred to as additive manufacturing, because it builds the product two-dimensional layer by two-dimensional layer. Once the initial prototype is sent to the printer, whether it be through wireless or hard-wired connections, the addition of thin layers begins.
With 3D printing, no design is too complex. The restrictions that traditional manufacturing placed on intricate products is erased with the ability to design on the CAD programs. And the printing, the detailed accumulation of individual layers, reflects those intricacies on the final product.
Why choose 3D printing for your company?
If your goal is to make the company’s workflow more efficient and effective, which it should be for every business leader, then investing in a 3D printer is a valuable decision. It’s the latest design in technology to speed up the creation process — similar to how iPhones replaced traditional landlines, laptops replaced desktops and hard-wired became wireless.
But beyond that, 3D printers allow for lowered machine operation costs, unlimited shapes and designs and risk reduction — by printing out prototypes before sending them off for mass production. And then there’s the speed. The speed that helps small businesses and product designers avoid prolonged manufacturing costs. The speed that eliminates wait times for the finished product. The speed that pleased companies and spread across multiple industries to make the 3D printing processes available for everyone.
The technology’s available to every company, regardless of size, and it’s impact will only continue to grow. The first commercially sold 3D printer in 2009 reflected almost 30 years of progress since the first rapid prototyping patent was issued in Japan.
