How is 3D printing used in different industries?


3D printers have become more affordable, easier to use, and more reliable ever since they started appearing on the desktop in the 2010s. Today it is common to find these revolutionary prototyping machines in office environments, schools, and even homes. With prices ranging from $1000 to $10,000 for a reliable machine, businesses of all sizes are beggining to utilize the technology. 3D Printers allow businesses to save time, money, and assist with in-house R&D and communication with clients.


Rapid prototyping and 3D printing is becoming an essential tool in many industries across the world. This includes education, architecture, product design, manufacturing, engineering, and medicine. The thing is that all of these industries have different needs. Just like in any project, it is important to find the right tool for the job and not all projects require the same tool. That is why it is so important to find the printer that best meets the needs of your organization. It is also important to consider aspects of a printer such as build volume, material capabilities, price, and speed to ensure you are making the right choice. You can learn more about these in our guide for choosing a 3D printer.
