What is the difference between 3D print and CNC machining

The principle of 3D printing is made by using special materials, layer by layer of "stacking", commonly known as additive manufacturing.

Simply speaking, the CNC machining principle is to cut and process the entire piece of material into a specified shape of the product, also known as reduced material manufacturing.


3D printing seems to have more advantages than CNC machining, but in reality, why is CNC machining still the preferred process for enterprises? The reasons are as follows:

1.Economic advantage

When processing large and heavy parts, CNC processing prices are much more favorable than 3D printing.

2. Processing standard

CNC machining has evolved over a long period of time and a complete set of standards has been developed in the industry, including spindles, tools and control systems. But 3D printing does not currently have such a molding standard.

3. Awareness

Many enterprises are completely in a strange stage for 3D printing. Due to unfamiliarity and distrust of this process, they often choose CNC machining that they are familiar with and understand when they face the choice.
