What is 3D printing?
3-D printing is a manufacturing process that builds layers to create a three–dimensional solid object from a digital model. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.
In 3D printing the object details, such as its shape and structure, are outlined using computer aided design (CAD) software or a digital scanning device. The details are stored in the computer, which determines how the 3D printer will create the desired object.
