3D Printing For Beginners

What is 3D Printing

In the press todat the 3D Printing topic is HOT! The 3D Printing technology made its way to the technological world in the year 1986, but not gain importance until 1990. It was not that popular outside the world of engineering, architecture and manufacturing. Now a days almost everything from aerospace components to toys are getting built with the help of 3D printers. 3D printing can provide great savings on assembly costs because it can print already assembled products.With 3D printing, companies can now experiment with newideas and numerous designiterations with no extensivetime or tooling expenses. They can decide if product concepts are worth to allocate additional resources.3D printing could even challenge mass production method in the future. 3D Printing is going to impact so many industries, such as automotive, medical, bussiness & industrial equipment, education, architecture, and consumer-product industries.

3D Printing Applications

One of the most important applications of 3D printing is in the medical industry. With 3D printing, surgeons can produce patient-specific 3D printed models of patients' body parts or organs. They can use these models to plan and practice surgeries, potentially saving lives. 3D printing makes it possible to make a part from scratch in just hours. It allows designers and developers to go from flat screen to exact, physical part. Nowadays almost everything from aerospace components to toys are being built with the help of 3D printers. 3D printing is also used for jewelry and art, architecture, fashion design, art, architecture and interior design.

What is a 3D Printer?

A 3D printer is unlike your standard, 2D inkjet printer. On a 3D printer the object is printed in three dimensions. A 3D model is
built up layer by layer. Therefore the whole process is called rapid prototyping, or 3D printing
