Metal and Plastic 3D Printing Compared

A plastic 3D printed part can perform as well or better than a metal counterpart – and at a lower cost.

Gain Access

Given the cost of creating metal parts, there are opportunities for 3D printed plastic parts to replace metal ones. This is particularly true with advances in material science and affordability. We see this in applications where plastic parts offer a cheaper, lighter, and more ergonomic alternative to metal.
