3D Printing In The Promotional Products Industry

3D printing is a technological phenomenon that has been around for several decades. Earlier, 3D printing machines were crude and cumbersome – it made 3D printing an expensive affair. However, the last decade witnessed several advancements in the 3D printing world. The process has become simpler, quicker and cost-efficient. Big corporations such as Nike and Microsoft have relied on 3D printing to highlight their brand.

It was only a matter of time before the promotional products industry embraced 3D printing.

What exactly is 3D printing?

3D printing is a revolutionary technique that redefined the way objects are manufactured. Let’s go through a brief intro on how 3D printing works:

Step 1: A digital drawing of the desired product is created via advanced CAD software.

Step 2: The digital drawing is provided as input to a 3D printer.

Step 3: The printer works with a spool of plastic to create intricate designs
i. It melts the plastic and deposits it on a plate.
ii. The plastic output creates a pre-defined shape layer-by-layer.

Step 4: All layers add up to create the perfect giveaway.
