Are 3d Printing Services Saving Time And Money?

By: Stuart Ting Home | Computers-and-Technology


Technology is changing rapidly. Every year new gadgets are introduced in the market for the betterment of the mankind. Recent development in the world of technology is 3D printers. 3D printing is an automated process of creating 3-dimensional objects. The way this technology is evolving with every passing day, it is believed that in coming years this technology would be implemented in almost every sphere of the economy. For sectors, who have already implemented this technology are using it to make their jobs easier and faster. Let us first get a detailed understanding of the device and how does it work?

What are 3D printers?

A 3D printer is a device through which you can bring a virtual design into a live three-dimensional product. The process of 3D printing begins with a virtual design created in CAD. CAD or computer aided design is a software that is capable of designing 2 dimensional as well as 3-dimensional images. The design is created via 3D modelling application in the software. It also has the capability of copying an existing image through a 3D scanner. The scanner then copies the file and makes a 3D digital copy of the image.


How does it work?
In order to get started, the designer needs to create a 3D model before it is ready to get printed. Once the image is created, the digital file is sent for printing. 3D printers then start printing the image by a process known as slicing. Slicing is a process in which the printer divides the 3D image into numerous horizontal layers. When the file is uploaded in the printer, the object is printed layer by layer. 3D printers are an intelligent designing tool that reads every segment and creates a 3D object out of it.

Advantages of 3D printing

Can be used for a variety of manufacturing options †3D printing services can be used by any kind of industry, from personal designing to manufacturing products. You can find some authorized distributors of this product in Melbourne.

Easy to customize products †You can design and print almost anything with the help of this technology. With customization, you can create your desired products with the specification and design of your choice.

Reduce storage †Just print the product, as and when desired. No more requirement of warehouses to store mass manufacturing products.

Better employment opportunities †With the technology growing at such a fast speed and looking at the bright future of this device, there will be high demand for designers and technicians to operate 3D printers.


Is 3D printing cost effective?

This is a big question to ask before purchasing the device. 3D printing is without any doubts a boon in the world of technology. However, using this equipment can be heavy on pockets. Therefore, before even thinking of purchasing, you need to do a self-analysis and check:-

- Do I need a 3D PRINTER?
- What is my objective of buying the printer?
- Would it help to reduce costs in my business?

These questions are really important to answer because 3D printers are an expensive investment. On the contrary, if you look in a longer run, you would realize that once the setup is up and running, the whole process of manufacturing products has become cheaper. With 3D printing, you don’t have to manufacture and store excess inventory in your warehouses. You can print the products in less time as and when desired. In simple words, 3D printing services have improved the process of manufacturing and storing products. Also, the cost of production is much cheaper than the cost of labour in developing countries. Many industries in Australia are already making the best use of the technology.

Conclusion
Manufacturers are still contemplating as to what extent this technology would replace the conventional processes. But one thing is for sure, with technology changing by the minute, it will become a priority for companies to become up-to-date with the latest tools and technologies to stay ahead in the game.
