3D Printing Quick Detail:
3D printing, otherwise known as additive manufacturing, is a manufacturing process that builds a part layer by layer. A computer sends instructions to the 3D printer, which deposits or hardens material in a preprogrammed pattern, creating layers in succession.
There are several kinds of 3D printer, some of which are used to print plastic parts, others to print parts made from metal or other materials. While these various 3D printing technologies are diverse, they have certain features in common.
3D printing has revolutionized manufacturing by giving businesses access to one-step manufacturing technology. 3D printers can be set up in offices and small workspaces, and require minimal training to operate. Moreover, startup costs are incredibly low, since materials are affordable and can be purchased in small quantities.
3D Printing Description:
If you need assistance in finding which 3D printing process is the right fit for you, you can set up a consultation and planning phase with our team of additive manufacturing experts.
All 3D CAD files you wish to have printed must be provided for the design and reviewed by the production team so they can be optimized and made to meet design requirements. These requirements will differ between FDM, SLA, SLS, and SLM 3D printing, so be sure to optimize your CAD model for the 3D printing process you wish to use

Different machining way has different time, here some lead time for your reference, it is not 100% same with manufacture time, due to different product and post-processing
3D printing: 2-3 lead time, and need to 3-5 days shipping time.
CNC machining, : 5-7 days lead time ,also need to add 3-7 days shipping time.
Vacuum casting need more time, because make silicone mold Vacuum casting: it usually small mass production, so we will make silicone mold firstly, lead time usually 5-10 days.
Sheet metal: if the quantity below 500PCS, then don’t need to make mold, so the lead time will be faster ,usually 7-10 days, but for mass production, we should make mold firstly, it will be long, make mold will take 20 days at least. And also has shipping time.
About product express, If you has express account, you could send to us or we arrange express for you.DHL, Fedex, UPS, TNT,etc.And after get the track number, will send it to you for you follow the goods.
