Commissioning a model with 3D Print N Scan – And value for money!

Why is it so expensive to get a 3D model made?

Why is it so expensive to get a 3D model made?Clients regularly ask me… “Why is it so expensive to get a 3D model made?”

Faced with a quote from £35 to many thousands of pounds, even tens of thousands, for a part to a large detailed model, customers gulp at the price they see before their eyes.

So, let’s put it into context, a little more!

When a potential new client approaches us, they have seen toy shops full of plastic toys, at the common price charged (RRP) to consumers, and expect a bespoke model to cost the same!

Why is it so expensive to get a 3D model made? What we first need to understand is!

The toys you see in the shops are within the reach, and can be brought by consumers due to the quantity of a particular toy or product sold, usually produced in the tens of thousands or millions.

The initial cost of highly qualified degree level staff, CAD designs, prototyping, tooling, assembly & packaging, which can be in the hundreds of thousands, is spread across the quantity which will be sold.

Why is it so expensive to get a 3D model made?

Some companies will charge considerably less than 3D Print N Scan because they work a full-time job and produce models in their spare time, if you can get hold of them!
