If you or someone you know have ever been shopping for golf clubs, you know how much of a large investment they can be. Getting just the right club can be very difficult, too; the club needs to be just the right shape, weight, depth, and have just the right feel for the golfer. With 3D printing, there is now a whole new level of customization possible and it’s easier than ever before.
3D printed golf clubs allow for adjustments to be made to a golf club design at a fraction of the cost of normally manufactured golf clubs. All 3D printed designs are based entirely on computer files, meaning that height and even grips can be customized by just adjusting the file. You’re able to create a customized grip that fits an individual perfectly and integrates it into the 3D printed club by printing it in high-quality material.
If you want to experiment with golf club design, 3D printing also makes that very simple. So many things go into the design of a golf club that even one prototype can be a costly endeavor. Traditional machining techniques quickly get expensive and you often have to order a set amount of products to make it worth a company’s effort to produce. However, with 3D printing, a printer can make only one version of a prototype with no issue. If you have a new idea for a putter, you can order a single 3D printed putter to take out and try with ease. This is true of any of the parts of a golf club, no matter how small. This can allow you to try out your new golf club designs before investing in large scale production. You can work through iterations and tweaks to the design without bankrupting yourself.
When you do get to the point where you want to begin mass production, 3D printing allows for you to optimize your order numbers so you are not managing a massive amount of unsold inventory. A 3D printer can rapidly and economically produce a small batch of custom golf clubs over the course of a few weeks. It can even produce the same design of a 3D printed golf club with minor changes if customers are able to make modular customizations to parts of a golf club.
Whether you are looking to create a new golf club design for yourself, or provide custom golf club parts for customers, 3D printed golf clubs are a great option. The speed, economy, and ease of customization are unmatched by any other method of manufacturing.
