3 Reasons Why You Need a 3D Printer

The barrier to entry for 3D printing used to be annoying and expensive. Now, you can print quality models, tools, and more from the comfort of your own home. Here are some reasons why you should consider buying a 3D printer. 

Gain New Skills

Owning a 3D printer opens the door to various new skills you can learn. You'll gain a ton of knowledge about different technologies.

You'll learn how a 3D printer works: how to insert filament, adjust slicer settings, which type of resin to use, and more.

Printing models require computer-aided design (CAD) software. With 3D printing, there are a ton you can master: Blender, Tinkercad, and Fusion 360 are the most commonly used. 

Almost all of your prints will require post-processing to improve strength or appearance. 

3D printing will improve your painting, sanding, gluing, and other post-processing techniques. Then you can apply these skills to other DIY projects.

Take Control

With 3D printing, take back control from manufacturers and produce things yourself. 

Large manufacturers often make over-priced and cheap goods. Sometimes, a better approach would be to 3D print them. 

Things at home break, and not always cheap to fix. If you can't find the part, or can't afford to order one with ridiculous shipping costs, make it!

This is also a great opportunity to gain extra income. You can print 3D models for a bunch of things and sell them online.

And if you have a thorough knowledge of 3D printers, you can make money repairing them.

Get Creative

Test the limits of your creativity with 3D printing.

With the right prep time, you can create almost any item you want - as long as it fits on the build plate.

Make toys for kids, or models of planets for school projects.

Experiment with different filaments that glow in the dark, change color, conduct electricity, and even tones that mimic the appearance of silk.

Avoid the hundreds of dollars you might spend at Amazon or the mall, and consider printing a gift for your loved ones.

Wrapping Up

With 3D printing, you can add design and modeling skills to your arsenal. 3D printing is a lot more affordable now, so the barrier to entry is low.

Avoid long wait times or cheaply made products. Consider making them! Once you've mastered it, spin up an online store and sell it.

And push your creativity skills to the next level with out-of-the-box 3D projects.

Keep in the mind that some 3D print projects can take hours to print! Leaving the printing running overnight is okay in some circumstances.
