Don’t buy a 3D printer… Do this instead.

Look around your house and tell me if you’ve got a printer at home. Your own printer. This is the 2D type that can take A4 sheets and print emails, documents, and tickets. No, right? A stunningly large percentage of people just don’t own their own printer because it’s so much easier to get a printout locally than to own the machine. Unless you’re required to print every day, you don’t need to own one… and that’s exactly the strategy that the folks at Xometry believe in. You shouldn’t need to own your own 3D printer either. Xometry can be used if you are looking to print a prototype product for a client, special project, or if a gift or unique design is what you want.

Xometry, based out of Maryland, has a global network of more than 10,000 CNC manufacturers, 3D printing companies, molders, etc. Access their online dashboard, use the Instant Quoting Engine, and you will be able to choose from many services, materials, or finish qualities. The dashboard instantly generates a quote with a delivery schedule. It takes out the need to worry about filaments, acetone baths, printers, etc.

Xometry’s unique global network and dashboard make it an Amazon of 3D prototyping. The company reduces the steps involved in prototyping and provides the exact quality you require. They can provide prints in as few as one color or as many as 600,000. Colors include those from Pantone, RAL and HEX libraries. The company’s PolyJet printers enable it to reproduce a wide range of materials through 3D printing. PolyJet printing allows you to control texture at a micron level, unlike extrusion and SLS printers, which can have their limitations. This results in flawless surfaces. Xometry’s PolyJet technologies also allow it to print in color, layer by layer. This allows you to reproduce a variety of materials, textures and finishes. You can replicate woven fabrics, wood grain, and even elusive granite or marble finishes that are tricker than you’d think. While most 3D printers focus just on 3D forms, Xometry’s PolyJet printers dive deep into the details of replicating textures and colors too, giving you a prototype that looks rubbery, satinesque, glossy, or wood-finished, with different parts showcasing different materials. The best thing? Xometry prints parts and ships them to you right at your door. This is often done within days.

Xometry provides its services to a variety of professionals including architects, designers, engineers, planners and artists. Their 3D printing services are even favored by larger companies like Bosch, BMW, Dell, General Electric, and NASA who use Xometry’s platform to quickly prototype ideas to perfection without investing heavily in 3D printing equipment. After all, unless you’re a hobbyist or a small business that 3D prints every single day, you shouldn’t need to own an expensive 3D printer… just the same way you shouldn’t need to own a car when you could just Uber instead.
