3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printerd object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying donw successive layers of material until the entire object is created.
The following infographic explains how 3D printing indeed can change the way of creation. Check out how 3D printing works in brief and a comparison between 3D printing versus traditional printing.
The infographic informs how 3D printing can change the future of manufacturing and medical science, consumer goods and food industry.
You can produce 3D parts and assemblies made from various materials in a single build. What is more, 3D printing may potentially eliminate the need for organs donors. For example, the cost of making artificial limbs could be reduced to 1/10 of traditional cost.
