If you are like me, you probably asked yourself that question thousands of times. But, seriously, what is up with 3D printing and why aren’t all print shops offering it? 3D Printing is actually not as regular printing. In fact, it is so much more complicated than that. The reason why this is so complicated is that it is such an innovation that the capabilities required to print many copies cost more than what the market wants to pay for it. We are so used to $0.18 per copy that when we get an estimate of $1,008 per copy, it gets just a tad complicated.
We are going to show you the process of 3D printing so that you can formulate an idea of what the process intakes and how to go about requesting estimates for possible jobs. You are going to need a graphic designer as well as a printer with the capability to print in 3D, which is rare but heck, here we go:
- Always have the concept you want to be printed IN MIND before you even start drawing. Imagine it vividly, all its dimensions, configurations and measurements. Understand it before you begin the process.
The drawing has to be in the 3D model you wish to print. It is not as easy a having a graphic on a screen and pressing print. It needs to be designed as it probably does not have an already-made copy, there are rarely any 3D objects already drawn.
Websites such as Thingverse.com will be able to help with this. They have some pre-designed models that may be of help.
- Create the model and upload it onto the computer. At this point, you may need to edit it so that it fits exactly for the purposes of printing. For the purposes of doing this, you will need software. This will include SketchUp or TinkerCad for the design process. CAD Software is required for the purposes of printing. In the construction field, a lot of the software used will be AutoCAD as it has the ability to design and holds millions of prototypes.
- Now, you send it off to the printer. The Print shop will need to specialize in 3D Printing or at least have access to the printers, but not just that, you want to experience as well. Some people think that you have to go directly to the print shops and give them your model. This is not true for Rush Hour Printing & Graphics. With us, you get it done online, conveniently delivered directly to you and with the most affordable pricing in town.
We use machines such as the CubeX Commercial 3D Printer that give us the ability to help you without you having to lift one finger. Ok, maybe the only finger is to send us that model via email, pressing Send and waiting it out!
We have the ability to do all of your 3D printing and can guarantee a breathtaking experience when you see the final product.
