New advances in 3D printing remove many barriers from bringing products to market that prevented inventors and entrepreneurs from achieving success before. Producing prototypes and first production runs are often costly for an inventor. In the past, getting a new product to market involves taking on risk by paying for expensive tooling and materials that can drain a bank account. Sadly, many budding entrepreneurs lost their prized savings and failed without enough working capital to produce the product. Older version of 3D printers produced rough prototypes that took a great deal of time to print from brittle materials. Today, when properly used, 3D printed prototypes can save an entrepreneur thousands of dollars and valuable time. And increase their chances of success by getting their products to market faster.
Advances in 3D Printing
Rapid advances in 3D printing are creating rapid advances in innovation. Earlier 3D printers produced rough and fragile models
