After a few weeks of using an Objet 3D printer many customers realize that a printer can be applied to many other areas of their business in order to solve problems or reduce costs. In most cases, a 3D printer is purchased to help in the design, research, and development process. As time passes and users get familiar with the printer’s capabilities they realize that it can replace some traditional methods of creating their products.
