A New Way To Think About 3D Printers


It wasn’t too long ago that 3D printers came into our world. This industrial robot graced our presence in 1984 and, like most technologies, has gotten much better as time has progressed. 3D printing started in high-tech industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical, and mechanical. Today, we are fortunate to have home and business 3D printers available alongside the high-tech industrial printer uses.

Not only are they accessible for personal use, they are accessible at an affordable price. This affordability doesn’t mean quality was sacrificed. Like many technological advancements, the more efficient the process becomes, the more affordable it is. This is true for 3D printers. What once started at a base price of $2,000 to $500,000 for a 3D printer only available to the tech industries is now available for your home use and can cost as little as $1,540 – for this option check out the Makerbot Replicator Mini, available online at AET Labs.

Do you agree that this is great news? It’s sometimes still hard for us to believe that the technology is available in our homes, our businesses, and in our most powerful technological industries. 3D printers have come such a long way since their inception in 1984. More than 30 years later and we have the ability to have a 3D printer in each home and business. Digital fabrication is easier than ever which means your business can thrive by using this new method. So long as you have the willingness to learn the computer software and proper 3D printing techniques, then you’re ready to own your own 3D printer. It’s not just for the big boys anymore.
