Overview

In the rapidly evolving business world, you need a 3D printer that puts you ahead of the competition.
3D Systems printers offer transformative advantages at every phase of creation – from initial concept design to the production of final products.
The most important step is to ensure you identify the best 3D printer technology for your application.

Which 3D Printer is Best for You?
Identifying your unique requirements within the entire design-to-manufacture process will help you select the best 3D printing technology and optimize its benefits.

3D Printing Performance Criteria You Need to Review

  • File-to-Finished Part Speed– Every 3D printer has a different file-to-finished part speed, which takes into account build preparation, print speed, required post-processing, and optional finishing time.
  • Part Strength- Will the parts you print do what you need them to do? This guide will help you review 3D printers that will create parts with the specific mechanical properties your application requires.
  • Accuracy- Accuracy, precision, and repeatability are dependent on a variety of factors including part size, material, geometry, post-processing, print orientation, and more. The Buyer’s Guide helps you define your application accuracy requirements so 3D Systems’ experts can help you choose the right 3D printer at the right price.
  • Material Properties- Understanding the intended applications and the needed material characteristics is important in selecting the best 3D printer for your needs. Each technology has strengths and weaknesses that need to be factored in
  • Part Aesthetics– Some applications require printed parts that are visually appealing, full color, or have specific look and feel requirements. Other applications are purely functional, and part appearance doesn’t matter as long as the parts perform as expected. Use the guide to help determine exactly what is most important to you and review which 3D printers are the best for your requirements.
  • Print Capacity- Required print capacity for production is determined by a variety of criteria including the printer’s ability to make the breadth of the parts you need to create.
  • Initial investment and total cost of operation- The Buyer’s Guide will also help you prioritize what’s more important to you right now: a low cost of entry so that you can learn how 3D printing will benefit your business, or, if you already know how additive manufacturing can be leveraged for your business, a higher initial investment that will result in a lower total cost of operation.
