downloadIt used to be that we spent many words discussing the expenses of 3D printing and what an obstacle that has been to many aspiring makers, businesses, and entrepreneurs. Whether we are discussing 3D printers, 3D scanners, or materials—lately we are able to do a lot of reporting on the many ways to either save or get around the initial costs that can be a problematic to get started.

While the individual hobbyist may find challenges in parlaying cash to bring their creativity to fruition, finding tens of thousands of dollars in the budget for 3D printing equipment can also be extremely challenging or just impossible for small businesses.

A select few manufacturers like Illinois based, 3DP Unlimited, aware that putting out a lot of cash for a 3D printer at the onset is often more conducive to stress than innovation, have begun offering leasing programs for businesses to offset any financial strain.

3DP produces professional 3D printers for a wide range of industries, like:

  • Manufacturing
  • Industrial equipment
  • Aerospace
  • Architecture
  • Construction
  • Furniture
  • Education

Teaming up with Lease Corporation of America (LCA), they will now be able 3DP printers affordable and available to organizations of all sizes. Each organization will be offered a low monthly price.

“On the surface, a leasing program may not sound newsworthy, but at less than $400 a month for a professional-grade large-format 3D printer, this program truly lowers the barrier to entry business of all sizes,” said a spokesperson for 3DP. “Hopefully this can lead to wider adoption of the technology in general, as this opens up availability to businesses who never thought they’d be able to afford a 3D printer.

This lower price will cover leasing for 3DP’s flagship printer, the 3DP1000, a 3D printer attractive to many 3D printing businesses as it features one of the largest build areas in the industry at 1000mm x 1000mm x 500mm. To visualize the power and capacity offered by the 3DP1000, imagine a 3D printer that is more than 70 times larger than your desktop 3D printer. The 3DP1000 was designed by engineers at 3DP who have world-class training and expertise in mechatronics and linear motion.

“The impact of 3D printing cannot be understated,” said John Good, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing for 3DP. “Just as personal computers revolutionized communication and creativity, 3D printing is upgrading the competitiveness and speed of global business. From rapid prototyping to finished goods, our clients rely on 3DP’s professional-grade technology to drive their businesses, and now our Platform Leasing Program makes it available to everyone.”
