Among all the printing technologies, 3D printing nowadays is considered as one of the cheapest process to manufacture a specific object. In this process, digital technology plays a big role on how outputs can be turned up into a physical product.
Since 3d printing starts with designing mock ups digitally, design can easily be presented through a computer. If changes are neccesary, there is an easier way to remove or add some details without going back to scratch unlike the traditional printing process. There is no need to produce repeated hard copies of designs which can lessen the expenses of the costumer. Especially when an object is too detailed and complicated, high resolution model of that particular object can be presented digitally.
Corrective options can also be presented easily by the designer and geometries will be presented more accurately. With this, there is no need to pay for additional service with designers as they can see quickly what the issues are and how to come up with the desired product. When ideal mock up has been created, it lessens the time of production and the object is more likely to be finished in a short amount of time. Costumers will not be bothered to transfer the projects to other printing outlets and have it priced expensively for rush works.
Since this printing consumes a filament, a durable material, the object may last for a long time giving the customers a little chance to spend more money in purchasing the same item. Also, most items are paid based on its volume. Good thing, filament used in 3d prints are lighter thus is cheaper in amount.
Aside from this, many people are willing to pay large amount of money just to purchase and own a realistic 3d object. Now, since 3d printing technology is now boosting and rampant , markets are producing items of low cost.
