In 3D printing a computer and a printer create a three dimensional image of an object by printing in layer by layer technology to bring out the 3D perception in the image. They are great tools to present the image in its depth perspective. A special resin or chemical material is used for laying down microscopic layers in succession to bring out a 3D image. The techniques used in printing are mostly FDM or SLA. Both will provide a good quality print but SLA is faster and due to the special resin material used in this printing technology it is costlier.
Depending upon the sample object the 3D printing will cost anything in the range of Rs 500 to 1500 per object. As it takes significant time to print the 3D image and costly resin or chemical materials are used some service providers charge on per hour basis also and the charges range from Rs 200/hour to Rs 500/hour.
