The Economics of CNC Milling Versus 3D Metal Printing

Cost per part is only one aspect of the economics involved in CNC Milling and metal additive manufacturing technologies. At its core, the decision to choose CNC or AM (or both) comes down to part requirements within a specific application.

If you’ve been researching solutions for metal parts manufacturing, you’ve probably encountered the “either-or” scenario: either metal additive manufacturing (AM) is the best option or CNC milling can’t be beat.
