In a news release today, Stratasys said it would begin offering complete 3D printing packages, called “3D Print Packs,” that include new special-edition uPrint machines.This is new. No one else offers a complete, all-in-one package that makes it this simple to get up and modeling.
And in the U.S., the 3D Print Packs are available for a monthly lease price of $290, another first. At $290 a month, buying may be less expensive than outsourcing a single model. Think of the money you’d save by in-sourcing only a few models a month.
Although these are the company’s lowest-price 3D printers, you can expect high accuracy. A recent Grimm & Associates benchmark study of 3D printers showed the predecessor uPrint model had higher accuracy than one of those uber-high res competing printers.
If you’re presently outsourcing a few models a month, would buying a 3D Print Pack be more cost-effective than outsourcing for you? How much could you save by keeping your print jobs in house?
