Outsourcing vs. In-House: When it Make Sense to Bring 3D Printing In-House

Oct. 19, 2022
In this whitepaper, we evaluate the value proposition of bringing SLS 3D printers in-house, in comparison with outsourcing SLS parts from a service bureau.

In this whitepaper, we evaluate the value proposition of bringing selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printers in-house, in comparison with outsourcing SLS parts from a service bureau. While SLS 3D printing is one of the most popular additive manufacturing processes, SLS printers are currently installed in businesses at lower numbers than other technologies due to their traditionally large size, complexity, and high price. By providing an overview of the SLS 3D printing market today and conducting six case studies representing three applications, we will demonstrate the positive ROI of bringing SLS in- house for all different types of businesses.
