What is the difference between 3D printing and cnc machining? How to choose?

3D printing has appeared in our country for many years, and the technology is quite mature, and cnc processing has more historical precipitation. Many customers will not know how to choose between 3D printing and cnc processing if they are just getting in touch. Xiehe Prototype Manufacturing Factory has 18 years of experience. Today, I will talk about the difference between the two.

In the rapid prototyping industry, 3D printing and cnc processing are both prototyping methods. The current 3D printing technology is developing rapidly. No matter how complex the product is, it can be printed. Now even metal materials can be printed. CNC processing is a relatively mature processing technology. Let me tell you the difference between 3D printing and CNC processing? How to choose?

1. CNC processing will have certain limitations. Some more complex prototypes cannot be processed, while the limitations of 3D printing are very low, no matter how complex the prototypes can be processed.
2. The rapid prototype processed by cnc has more advantages in price than 3D printing.
3. In fact, 3D printing is not as good as CNC processing in terms of printing the whole piece, especially for super large pieces. It is generally difficult to achieve with 3D printing, but CNC processing does not have this problem.
4. 3D printing allows your imaginative works or products to be smoothly processed and displayed in front of you, while CNC processing has more advantages in economy and large-scale prototype production.

Well, if you have any questions about the rapid prototype, you can call Peng Xia, who has more than 10 years of experience in product design and project management; can handle the whole process from concept to product;
Rich in industrial design, prototype models and manufacturing chain resources; familiar with ergonomic product research; prototype models, the best communication center between overseas and China of the Design Affairs Department;
Love design, willing to help people live better through good design.
