Why Looking for The Cheapest 3D Printing Service is a Bad Idea.
You should always remember that old saying: “you get what you pay for”; it has proven to be true in so many instances.
Prime example; you may purchase a pair of cheap shoes at a bargain brand store one day thinking “What a deal!”, only to find them falling to pieces within a few weeks.
You will probably end up replacing that very pair of cheapies 3 times, costing you more than a better-quality shoe would have cost, had you made the initial investment in the first place instead of penny-pinching, or as the British say “being penny-wise and pound foolish!”.
Remember this now: “Buying cheap is buying expensive”.
The same can be said for 3D printing. At JCAD-Inc. we understand what everyone wants; a service provider that is cost-effective but provides a great product.
But do consider these few things when you next shop for a 3D Printing Service. It is not as simple as you may think.
The Matter of Education and Training.
Are you paying for a quick youtube watching, a 2-week sideline course taking technician, or are you investing in someone who dedicated a lot of time and money to become an expert in the field?
Don’t be afraid to fork out a little more dough for a true designer who is customer focused and who is able to provide you the absolute best quality product.
Experience and Affordability
Yes, affordability is important in this day and age with costs rising for pretty much everything, but do remember to consider experience in this industry too.
A designer or 3D printing company that has longevity in the industry will certainly be able to provide you the best advice, service and product than someone with less experience.
This could mean a more competitive and affordable price, as an experienced hand will know their equipment and technology better and will be able to work quicker and more efficiently.
It’s up to you how you spend your money, but we say if you’re going to do something, especially something that is going out to your clients or the public, do it properly and spend accordingly.
After all, it is an investment into your business and a sustainable future!
