Possible use cases on why you should rent a 3D Printer

- College/University students who are experimenting with designs for their final year projects requiring 3D Printer for a specific period of time and do not want to own a 3D Printer. 1-2 months' rent could be split by multiple groups of students making it very affordable.
- Designers/Hobbyists wanting to prototype a one-off project to improve it very rapidly with minor changes every prototype, for whom service bureaus are slower and owning a 3D Printer might not be a worthy long-term investment.
- Startups who have perfected a design but need 100s of units over a short period of time, to rapidly produce & test their product (before mass manufacturing), can rent multiple 3D Printers for a short period, for low quantity batch productions.
