White Paper:
The Truth About Speed

Is the hare really the fastest?

Speed is often a misunderstood indicator of a
3D printer’s performance.

A 3D printer’s speed often refers to the time a part spends in the build chamber. However, this rarely represents the entire process. Understanding what’s involved from start to finish can help you understand which technologies will truly save you time.

In this white paper, you’ll learn about the key considerations for assessing a 3D printer’s speed such as:

  • The full scope of the process, pre- and post-build
  • The level of automation or lack thereof
  • The variables affecting build time
  • The effect of age on equipment and materials
