If you’re an engineer or inventor, the idea of 3D printed prototypes is probably not new to you. If you haven’t been keeping up with the latest technology, you may be pleasantly surprised by what modern printing machines can offer you. With the advent of small scale Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) machines, the average price and turnaround time for a prototype has been greatly reduced. We encourage any interested engineer or inventor to consider these benefits:
- Popularity of free basic 3D modeling software such as SketchUp
- Drastically reduced costs compared to just 5 years ago
- Rapid turnaround times, sometimes as soon as 2 days
- Multiple material options
- Excellent precision to price ratio
