How Long Does It Take To 3D Print a Part?

Have you ever been curious about how long it takes to print in 3D? Watch this webinar to see a brief overview of the printing workflow from pre-processing to post-processing. 

About This On-Demand Webinar

In this webinar, 3D printing application engineer, Tommy DuPuy, dives into the pre-processing of 3D printing. We discuss factors that influence print time including type of technology, build size, printer settings and model orientation. When you think how long it takes to 3D print a part there’s more than just the time it takes the printer to physically print the part, there are multiple steps in the 3D printing workflow, such as: 

  • Data Export from CAD, 3D Scan, STL Checker/Part Analysis 
  • Prepping the Printer 
  • Building the Part 
  • Removing the Part from the Printer 
  • Break or Wash Away Support Material 
  • Lastly, Getting the Finished Product
