The prices on 3D Print Direct are already heavily discounted and close to cost price. The only way we can keep part price so low is to be able to 100% pack our machines with parts and having a semi automated ordering process. By having longer lead times we can more efficiently pack many orders together. Shorter turnaround times and technical support are what we offer through Graphite Additive Manufacturing but costs are higher. There is a comparison chart on our homepage.
