What is 3D Printing?

3D printing

3D printing or additive manufacturing is a way of building three-dimensional objects from a digital file. As a result, the construction of a 3D printed object is achieved using an added layer processes. In an added layer process, an object is created by extruding down successive layers of various types of material known as 3d printer filament until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.

Prototyping with carbon fibre

3D printing allows you to produce complex shapes with less material than normal manufacturing methods. Therefore in 3D printing, special tools are not required (for example, a cutting tool with certain geometry or a mould). Therefore, the part is manufactured directly onto the built platform layer-by-layer and this leads to a unique set of benefits and fewer limitations.

3D printed parts are rarely ready-to-use out of the machine though. They often require some post-processing to achieve the desired level of surface finish.

XYZ Da Vinci 3D Printer Filament Cartridge Resetter

3d printing gives you the ability to create things that otherwise would cost a lot in engineering costs, fast prototyping to full production possibilities if set up correctly. For example, I created the design for the XYZ da Vinci printer cartridge resetter and similarly I created the design for the XYZ da Vinci junior 3d printer NFC chip resetter, that allows me to produce this product in the comfort of my home office.
