Is 3d printing cheaper than injection molding?

What is the difference between 3D printing and injection molding? Is 3D printing cheaper than injection molding? Here is the answer for you:

Injection molding products are a production method in which the injection molding machine uses the characteristics of hot melt and cold solidification of plastic materials, melts the plastic materials into the mold under pressure, and takes them out of the mold after cooling and shaping; it has the characteristics of high output and large batches.

3D printing is a method of using computer technology to print three-dimensional models layer by layer. It has the characteristics of not requiring molds to produce various product models, but because there is no pressure process in the printing process, the product strength is not as strong as injection products. High efficiency when used for small, single-piece products and models.

Is 3d printing cheaper than injection molding?
From the perspective of manufacturing quantity, 3D printing will be slower than injection molding. For large-scale manufacturing, injection molding is still the best choice. In terms of quality, the parts produced by 3D printing do not have the same physical properties, and the product resistance is not good enough for injection molding. Finally, from a cost point of view, the manufacturing cost of injection molding will be relatively lower.
