3D Printing vs CNC Machining

Written by: Stratasys GmbH | Published:

In many cases, additive manufacturing is disrupting traditional processes by delivering parts faster and for less.

With additive processes quickly developing, conventional wisdom is being challenged when it comes to manufacture and to make it is easier to identify the optimal approach, leading additive manufacturing company Stratasys has produced a whitepaper to explore the differences between CNC machining and 3D printing.

Find out in this whitepaper how 3D printing compares with CNC machining and the scenarios where additive manufacturing may be the better option. The whitepaper explains how to analyse your project’s requirements and the different considerations to keep in mind during the design phase, including:

- Workflows, setup and complexities

- Time and cost outlines

- Quality characteristics

- Terminology overview
