What is 3D Printing?

3D printing is an art form. Basically, It is creating actual objects from a computer and a printer. It requires special technology and formatting to acquire the necessary information for a 3D printer to print a design. Technically speaking, 3D objects are made via a process known as additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing is a term used to describe the process of creating three-dimensional objects. The process is successively layering material which are formed under computer control, adding layer-upon-layer of material. This process of layering various 3D Printing materials results in a 3D object.

Additive Manufacturing starts off with a basic combination of computer usage coupled with special 3D modeling software. You would first need to create a CAD sketch. The 3D software then reads the CAD file and builds a structure, layer by layer from printing material. Look at the various 3D printing materials here.

The technologies associated with Additive Manufacturing are Rapid Prototyping, Direct Digital Manufacturing, Layered Manufacturing and 3D Printing. There are different 3d printing methods that were developed to build 3D structures and objects. Some of them are very popular nowadays, others have been dominated by competitors. We will tailor our efforts to your requirements. What type of 3D printing process you need depends on what you need to be printed. More information can be obtained by getting in touch with us.

What is a 3D printer?

3D printers are machines that can make everyday things and more. They can produce different kinds of objects in various materials – all from the same machine. Take a look at buy 3D printers page.

What can you do with 3D Printing?

The possibilities of 3D printing are endless. From medical advances, like prosthetic limbs to architecture prototypes and art to engineering, the sky is your limit. 3D printing is increasingly being seen as a method of discovering possibilities within various industries. Read up on some amazing case studies we’ve been privileged enough to be a part of.

We’re sure you’ve either lost or broken something, to which you discovered it’s no longer sold or is irreplaceable. What 3D printing allows, is to easily create and recreate an item.

3D printing has allowed everyday items to be made to measure and to your specifications and requirements. That means that things like mugs, furniture, prototypes, door handles, fittings, models, pretty much anything, can be printed to your tastes at the touch of a button. Nowadays, 3D printing has advanced in such a fashion that even medicine, prosthetics and organs and much more can be made via a 3D printer.

3D printing offers affordable and versatile manufacturing to the masses. Here at 3D Forms we offer personalised 3D printed products, come see for yourself.
