5 Tips to Make Your 3D Prints Cheaper


Receiving a high-quality print for an affordable price is the number one concern for most 3D printing enthusiasts. So it’s about time to reveal some simple tricks that can reduce your 3D printing costs enormously. Trick #1: Compare 3D Printing Materials. Each material comes with its own price. That’s why comparing prices between (similar) materials makes sense.

Eco Friendly Product Packaging — Paper Pulp

3D Innovations

Eco friendly packaging, especially paper pulp, has made great strides as we all look to shrink our environmental footprint. Paper pulp is made from recycled paper and/or cardboard and is an eco friendly material option for various packaging needs. Paper pulp has been widely used in the food and protective packaging industries, however it is becoming more popular in other areas for not only protective packaging, but also decorative packaging. Ditching Plastic for Paper Pulp Packaging.

AM Terminology

Wohlers Talk

Standard terminology for additive manufacturing and 3D printing is critical when communicating. It puts everyone on the “same page” and more accurately conveys thoughts and ideas when conversing, presenting, and publishing. Ignoring terminology standards and using whatever terms you prefer can cause confusion or worse. The first version of the ASTM F2792 Standard Terminology for Additive Manufacturing Technologies defines 26 terms and was published in 2009.
