 3D printing is an investment. Even after you’ve bought your 3D printer, the costs don’t end there – filament needs to consistently be replenished, particularly if you 3D print often, and there are things like post-processing tools and bed adhesives that add up as well. At 3DPrint.com, we understand that 3D printing can get expensive, […]
