White Paper: When to 3D Print In House and When to Outsource
- The three main methods of prototyping with 3D printing
- The pros and cons of different 3D printing methods
- The biggest considerations before choosing the method that’s right for your team
Prototyping with 3D printing helps teams communicate with stakeholders and ultimately results in better end products. At a relatively low cost, teams can show 3D printed prototypes to customers, business partners, and people across the company. Designers can receive feedback and quickly iterate designs. High quality visual prototypes can be used for marketing and sales. Functional prototypes can be user tested and quickly revised, resulting in an end product that meets customer needs.
