This is a process whereby a solid form of a 3D object is generated from a digital file. It is therefore not regular office printing, but a manufacture process using special printers.
How Does it 3D Printing Work?
This can be very interesting, considering that the end result you get is an actual object and not an image on paper. It first starts with you creating the desired object using 3D supported software, which might include an AutoCAD. Then, the 3D modeling software prepares the file for printing. You will need to have materials from which the object will be created. The printing is then done by having the object created layer by layer until the whole process is finished.
Benefits of 3D Printing
There are many benefits derived from using 3D printing that a business or individual can make the most of. One benefit is reduced cost and labor. With 3D printing, you will only need the printer and the materials to produce the final object, and this is much, much cheaper when compared to the traditional manufacturing methods.
Another benefit is the increased speed of the manufacturing process.
There is less wastage of the materials, when compared to traditional manufacturing methods where the materials might end up being shaved off in order to attain a desirable finish.
With 3D printing, it is possible to come up with new shapes which can readily be manufactured.
