How Much Does 3D Printing Cost?
While revolutionary in its ability to go from concept to prototype, 3D printing can vary quite drastically on it’s pricing due to many factors. Undoubtedly, these factors can lead to a lot of confusion for customers. At least once a day we hear the question: “how much does 3D printing cost?” from one of our customers. Therefore, it is important to use a tool that can quickly break down 3D printing costs by the factors that drive them.
There are currently three main forms of 3D printing, each varying drastically on the final product they create and the price tag involved. At SD3D, we focus on industrial and commercial 3D printing service applications that require mechanical strength. Therefore, we mainly focus on the lower cost FDM, or Fused Deposition Modeling 3D printing method.
