What are the advantages of CNC machining compared to 3D printing?

  • 2022-04-01 15:35:43
3D printing and CNC machining are relatively common production processes in the field of precision machining. There are similarities and differences between the two. For example, CNC machining is more suitable for mass production. It can create many products in a short time. 3D printing needs It takes hours to create a product. Compared with 3D printing, CNC machining has the following advantages:
Surface treatment advantage, CNC provides better surface finish than 3D printing because the material does not deform during processing. 3D printing has a poor surface finish and the material is warped because the material is layered heated plastic.
Prototype integrity is improved, CNC machines do not heat the material and modify it, the material remains stronger and has better structural integrity than a 3D printer, which must heat the material to build the intended product. 3D printers may also need to add foreign matter to the mix to make prototypes, which CNC machines do not.
CNC machines are more precise, so parts have better tolerances than 3D printers, and prototypes with shafts or links to other parts will be of higher quality and more likely to fit other parts.

The cost of 3D printing depends on the volume of material required. The final product quantity does not determine the price of the CNC machine. For larger orders, 3D printing is not cost-effective, which is where CNC machine tools are booming.
