Over the last three years, the number of 3D printing companies has grown by several times. These companies provide the following services:
- Assembly of 3D printers;
- Designing and printing of models;
- Printing and selling of goods (from souvenirs to components for home appliances).
The first option assumes independent purchase of all components so that customers could see the full price list beforehand. All required components can be bought from AliExpress or similar stores for 20 000−25 000 rubles, whereas the cost of each assembly is 20 000 or more. Depending on your experience, installing a single printer takes around 1.5−2 weeks.
Designing and printing of various goods require some modeling skills. The most frequently printed goods are phone cases, all sorts of souvenirs, soap dishes, miscellaneous electronic appliances, etc. You also should always keep close tabs on current trends and print "hyped" stuff. This will increase your sells by several times.
