With the recent astronomical spike in 3d Printing around the world, modelers are sprouting up from everywhere. And these modelers using CAD CAM and CNC technology are rapidly needing mass production of their designs. This is not surprising in the same way that conventional inkjet printing has made the population of amateur authors blossom.
So while millions of people are flocking to 3d custom printing and realizing that they need high end mass production injection molding companies to help in large scale fabrication, the same people are realizing that outsourcing their work to Shenzhen, China; Hong Kong, Taiwan or Korea is much less expensive. Literally 10 years ago, when nobody spoke English, this would have been impossible. Now, with the globe as tiny as it is and the convergence of manufacturing tech with communications tech, there’s no stopping the East-West trade boom.
What this means for 3d modeling amateurs is that they are going to have to learn a process to get their designs mass produced. The start up tooling costs are often higher than they generally expect. Then there’s mold making and overseas shipping in container loads to know about. Finally, retail distribution is a whole big ball of wax new product designers are going to have to experience. This is where it becomes crucial and beneficial to partner with an injection molding company that understands the whole massive supply chain.
