Your Biggest Sourcing Problems, Solved
Long lead times? Check. Huge minimum orders? Check. Exorbitant shipping costs? Check. If these are your struggles when sourcing raw materials, then 3D Printing is for you. And you can finally get your hands on it for your collection.
What the x#$% is 3D Printing?
3D Printing starts with a "CAD" file which is basically just a digital drawing of an object. A 3D Printer reads this file and then builds the object by laying down material layer by layer until the entire piece is complete. Think of a multi-layer cake, with the baker laying down each layer one at a time until the entire cake is formed.
