3D Printer Benchmark
New report measures speed, cost and quality of 3D printers.
This extensive report compares the performance of six 3D printers for four different parts. No other benchmark study can make this claim. 60 pages, 29 charts, 11 tables and 75 images are included in this exhaustive study.
Looking for the right 3D printer for your operation? Need to understand how one system measures up to another? The 3D printer benchmark is the perfect tool to get you up to speed quickly. Don't make any decisions based on vendor claims. Base your buying decisions on actual time, cost and quality measures.
Seven Systems Tested
The benchmark reviews the following systems:
- Alaris30 (Objet Geometries)
- Designjet 3D (HP)
- ProJet SD 3000 (3D Systems)
- Sd300 Pro (Solido)
- V-Flash (3D Systems)
- uPrint (Stratasys)
- ZPrinter 310 Plus (Z Corporation)
The North American version of the report excludes HP's Designjet 3D. The European version, which uses actual list prices when purchasing 3D printers in Europe, substitutes the Designjet 3D for the uPrint.
Performance measures are reported in the following areas:
- Acquisition cost
- Annual cost
- Hourly rate
- Prototype cost
- Effective material cost
- Machine time
- Total process time
- Dimensional accuracy
- Surface finish
New! Interactive Ranking Indexes
For the first time ever, the benchmark report presents two comparative indexes that show weighted rankings of the 3D printers for form/fit prototyping applications and for office compatibility.
To see how the systems rank with your personal criteria, an interactive worksheet is available for download. This companion document can be accessed here.
