Should your company finally invest in a state-of-the-art 3D printer, or will the materials and technologies be too limiting for your applications? The price point is high, and while the ROI can sometimes be justified, the cost of maintaining the equipment, servicing the equipment, and the software can make ownership a non-starter for most companies.
A service bureau could make for a temporary solution, but will the limitations and restrictions (not to mention cost), be worth the time investment that yields nothing more than a part? You have options, and you need to understand the value proposition.
This webinar will cover your 3D printing options:
• Buying 3D Printing Equipment Outright: Although buying a 3d printer is costly to maintain and service, and available materials are often proprietary, owning your own printer allows freedom and flexibility to print on demand.
• Service Bureaus: In essence, you're just submitting a drawing and receiving a part. You don't hold any ownership, and the relationship is limiting - and costly.
• Community-Based Hybrid Facilities: A new, unique concept in which you stand to benefit from the use of more equipment and technology, and the risk (especially the cost) is spread across many members.
This webinar will show you how to arrive at the best possible product for the least amount of money by providing the many available options that exist in the marketplace.
