3D printing or otherwise known as “Additive printing” is the production of a real life object by use of layers from a specific printing machine. While nothing about this technology is new, the applications and availability are. However, we’ve been using it since long. It’s only until recently that the use and applications have become so very vast.
The price of reduction that has occurred with 3D printing has made it accessible to nearly anyone. As where before the only usage that printing a 3D form or object was for companies of great means, you now can obtain one for a reasonable price. What once carried a cost of $20,000 USD can now be purchased for around $1,000 USD? In addition, there’s various websites that even teach you to build your own 3D printing machine with easily followed instructions.
