12 ways 3d printing changed the world

It’s astounding to think that up until just a few years ago, the idea of being able to print out any real, physical object you could imagine – all safely at home – was mostly considered the stuffof science fiction. Though the earliest 3D printing technologies can be traced back to 1986, when the first patent was issued for an SLA apparatus invented by Charles Hull, it was not until January 2009 that the first commercially available consumer 3D printer, the BfB RapMan, was put up for sale. The move was like the start of an avalanche. Soon, projects like Z Corp’s Spectrum Z510, RepRap and MakerBot’s Cupcake CNC kit began to change the world for good. 3D printers could be bought to use in anyone’s living room or office, and…

get started with 3d printing

3D printing has become a hot topic recently and many people are beginning to realise the benefits and possibilities that it has to offer. With more people looking to take the leap and invest in, or start using one, it seems pertinent to address the questions of what exactly a 3D printer is and does. 3D printing is the process of building something layer by layer. It doesn’t matter which form of 3D printing or which technology is being used, this fundamental principle stays constant. There is a general misconception that all 3D printers are the same thing – this is not the case at all. Each printer and process will come with their own challenges and key principles that need to be followed to get the best out of them.…

how do 3d printers work?

“The strength of the finished piece depends partly on the type of plastic filament you use” 3D printing is also called additive manufacturing because it works by adding new material, as opposed to a computercontrolled lathe or laser cutter, which removes it. The earliest system, called stereolithography, dates back to 1986 and uses a resin that hardens on exposure to ultra-violet light. The printer scans a beam of UV light over the surface of a bath of the resin to create a thin layer of plastic. The model is then sunk slightly into the bath so that the laser can add a new layer on top. Selective laser sintering (SLS) works in a similar way to print with metal. The printer shakes a thin layer of metal powder onto the print…
