As a 3D printer owner, you may be already reaping the benefits of 3D printing, such as rapid production, design freedoms and easy access to fresh prints of the machine.

Sometimes your project requires a different manufacturing process, material or post-processing operation that you can’t handle in-house.

We dive into these scenarios and others to help you decide when you need to outsource your project to a service provider.

  • Back up and overflow printing services
