Why is my 3D printed part so expensive?
Short answer…it’s probably not expensive relative to what you’re asking for. It’s that society programs us from birth to think plastics and other physical goods are “cheap” thanks to clever design for manufacturing at scale. Here’s why… We recognize that AM parts can be “expensive” relative to other plastic parts you might have seen available off the shelf. In this post, we’d like to walk you through one way of thinking about pricing on plastic part fabrication, both conventionally and with digital manufacturing. A common example we give is the “spork” offered at your favorite fast food restaurant. Fast-food restaurants can give these away for free because they make them in the 10M+ / yr and therefore their $500K mold that produces them can be amortized. It’s part of a pleasurable eating experience in the United States to have a fork + spoon combined. But to make just 1 (one) plastic spork with that manufacturing process (plastic injection molding) would
Online Additive Manufacturing with MIT, edX and You3Dit
When someone is asked, “who has the best undergraduate engineering program? Graduate engineering program?”, 99 times out of 100 that person will respond: MIT or Massachusetts Institute of Technology. So when they say, “would you like to help us co-teach a program this summer at MIT” the answer is just as obvious…you say “yes”! Kicking off You3Dit’s work with MIT started with our content development and course facilitation for their online edX course called: “Additive Manufacturing for Innovative Design and Production“. This is “An 11-week course on the fundamentals, applications, and implications of 3D printing for design and manufacturing” and as Chris puts it, “this is the most comprehensive course on Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) that I’ve ever seen…” Professor A. John Hart and his rockstar team of course developers and facilitators helped over 1000 online learners take their knowledge of Additive Manufacturing to the next level. If you were ever wishing there was a comprehensive, online course on Additive
