Ultimate Guide to Starting & Running Your 3D Printing Model Shop



It’s probably no secret to you that running an internal shop and managing orders isn’t always a walk in the park — there are frustrations and inefficiencies for you, the shop operator, and for the engineers and designers who order from you.

We estimated all the waste this process causes and, for the average shop of one operator and about ten engineers and designers, as much as $15,000 and 10-20% of the operator’s time gets wasted on inefficient order management.
When you look at all the pains, challenges, and waste inherent in the typical shop management process, it’s obvious there has to be a better way. And that’s where an internal work order management solution comes into play—a solution like GrabCAD Shop.
This whitepaper offers everything you need to know about our cloud-based production management software, GrabCAD Shop, and how to start and run your own internal shop.
