3D Printing vs. CNC Machining: Prototyping Cost Comparison

3D Printing vs. CNC Machining: Prototyping Cost Comparison
In this video I compare the cost of 3D printing vs CNC machining from the home designer’s perspective. My test case is a spinning top with articulated arms that I designed. I put some hard numbers on how much it would cost to make a prototype from these two different manufacturing processes.
