3D Printing vs CNC Machining

The question to ask when considering 3D Printing vs CNC Machining is: “What will my parts be used for?” As these are two different processes, the products they produce must be considered completely different beasts as well. 3D Printing is an additive process whereas CNC machining (or milling) is a subtractive process. Sure there are pros and cons for each process, but ultimately, what is it you want your plastic part to do or accomplish? After examining the products [...]
