What is a 3D Printer

The new buzzword in the world of technology is 3D printing. Unbelievably, 3D printers can “print” in plastic, metal, nylon, and over a hundred other materials to create a huge range of objects. From household items like bottle openers, drinks coasters and desk lamps to human teeth and organs (using a person's own cells!), a 3D printer can produce all kinds of complex objects to meet various needs. In fact, in the 3D printing area, they say that “If you can draw it, you can make it”.  

How Do They Work?

The big question is, how do 3D printers work? 3D-printed objects may look as though they have been carefully sculpted, however, 3D printing actually works by laying many thin layers on top of another in order to create a finished product. This process is called additive manufacturing. In the first instance, a design will need to be produced using Computer-Aided Draughting Software (CAD).
