3D printing is used for rapid prototyping, building concept models, making one-off functional devices, and even low volume production. The reason it is so versatile is that 3D printing can directly translate a 3D digital model into a physical object in very few steps.
A 3D printer processes instructions from software that “slices” the model into individual layers. These slices of data dictate how the printer should deposit or fuse material on each layer to build objects one thin cross-section at a time. 3D printing methods and processes are not all the same. The term 3D printing covers a family of different manufacturing technologies and each one has its strengths and trade-offs. This article will go into detail on how to get the most out of different 3D printing services and navigate different process selections. What are the Different 3D Printing Processes? Industrial 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, […]
