CNC Machining vs. 3D Printing

While CNC machining (a subtractive process) and 3D printing (an additive process) are both manufacturing methods for plastic parts, there are pros and cons for each, and the right choice depends on your needs for your parts. Some of the advantages of CNC machining are: Materials: Since different plastic materials are available for CNC machining than for 3D printing, you can CNC machine prototypes out of the same base materials you’re going to use for your injection-molded production parts. This allows [...]
