3D Printing VS CNC Machining :

How The Old and The New Match Up



When designs are still fluid and product specifications are in flux, two common choices are 3D printing and CNC milling. Both can meet the needs for early concept models through functional prototypes without the delays imposed by mold, tool, or die making. Both processes can make parts in a variety of materials and produce the low part quantities needed for product development at a reasonable cost.

However, the similarities end there. In many ways, 3D printing is the opposite of CNC milling. Most notably, the factors that influence time and cost are quite different. Discover the key factors of consideration in this free to download white paper, and how to properly compare 3D printing with your existing CNC machining operations.
