3D printed plastic parts
Additive manufacturing (AM) is an excellent option for producing plastic components quickly and cost-effectively. Plastic AM is generally cheaper than subtractive manufacturing, and its speed and automation allow for rapid, iterative part optimization. 3D printing plastic parts involves precisely building up a part layer by layer, distinguishing it from subtractive CNC plastic machining. As 3D printing uses a huge variety of polymer materials, it's ideal for many applications, including prototyping and low volume production runs.
