What is 3D Printing?
3D printing is an "additive manufacturing" process. To understand it better, let’s think of an apple cut into horizontal slices. When we place these slices one over the other, we have a complete apple. 3D printing works on the same principle the slices are known as layers. It prints an object layer by layer. The materials used to print vary and are covered in detail in the materials section.
The technology has been in existence for many years now. It has traditionally been a bastion of large industrial house and research institutes who used it for ‘Rapid Prototyping’ of their designs.
However, the recent revolution in 3D printing – propelled by DIY communities and other technological developments has made it more accessible and economical. It is now possible for hobbyists, freelance designers, small industries as well as school kids to use this technology – directly by owning quality 3D Printers or indirectly by getting their designs printed by online 3D printing solutions providers.
