3D printing is a process that is used to builds a three-dimensional object from a computer-aided design (CAD) model, by adding material layer by layer
3D Printing: An Introduction
3D printing is a process that is used to build a 3D object from a CAD model. It is used for rapid prototyping and material wastage is very less since it is an additive manufacturing process.
3D Printing is way better than conventional manufacturing processes like forging, casting and machining.
It is very customizable and moreover, material wastage is very less since the material is added layer by layer in contrary to material removal from a block.
Creating any object with a 3D printing machine is much cheaper, faster and more accurate.
3D printers are readily available in the market and many printing services are also being offered by companies.
It is widely used, some of its applications are printing drugs in pharmaceutical industries, space industry, and fabric designing.
Also applicable in prosthetics for human beings, lightweight mechanical components and recently even in printed circuit boards and food too.

3D printing is a type of additive manufacturing in which material is added layer by layer.
3D printing Process
3D printing is a process that is used to builds a three-dimensional object from a computer-aided design (CAD) model, by adding material layer by layer. It is used for rapid prototyping and material wastage is very less since it is an additive manufacturing process. First, to make a blueprint of the object to be printed […]
Fused Deposition Modeling
Selective laser sintering
3D printing methods
Some commonly used 3D printing methods are Fused Deposition Modeling, Stereolithography, and Selective laser sintering. Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Fused Deposition Modeling, works on additive manufacturing principle by layering materials on top of each layer. A plastic filament or metal wire is unwound from a coil and supplies material to an extrusion nozzle which is […]
3D Printing Materials
3D printing is widely used to print objects for different applications, so the material used also varies according to the purpose of the object to be printed.
Importance of 3D Printing
3D Printing is widely used in different platforms from manufacturing mechanical components to printing bio cells, from printing food to printing fabrics. It can be observed that many of the items that we use in our day to day life are 3d printed or can be printed. The most common application of this process is […]
