3D printing is used by a lot of modern enterprises mainly to create prototypes in a more efficient way, saving time and saving money. This new method of creating models and prototypes gives an advantage to corporations in order to increase efficiency in the development stage of their product conceptualization. This new method is seen as a revolutionary step forward for the new age of technological development.
3D printing is now made available and easier to the market. Everyone can now buy their own machines and set up 3D printing at the ease of their own home. Imagine yourself creating and unlimited possibilities of designs, from miniature figures and keychains to actual functional tools. This new revolutionary technology is now more accessible and affordable than ever before in the market! It offers infinite possibilities especially to creatives and makers. As they say, when you can image it, you can make it.
If ever you are planning and considering buying a 3D printer, you might come across the question “What kind of 3D printer do I buy?” There over thousands of 3D printer models now available in the market right now, and there are merely thousands more to come as this industry is just getting warmed up. Some of the models to names are the Stereolithography (SLA), Digital Light Processing (DLP), fused disposition modeling (FDM), Selective Laser Sinistering (SLS), Selective Laser Melting (SLM), Electronic Beam Melting (EBM0, and the Laminated Object Manufacturing (LOM). The most common type of printer available now in the market is the FDM type of 3D Printer which uses liquid plastic ink which hardens and forms into solid plastic material.
