3D printing is a process through which one can convert digital files/models into three-dimensional physical objects. 3D printers do this by joining successive layers of material. Because of this, some people also refer to 3D printing as additive manufacturing.

While many people think of 3D printing as a new technology, its history dates back to the early 1980s. Nonetheless, the popularity of 3D printing is rising. In 2013 for example, analysts estimated that the global 3D industry was worth $3.07 billion. By 2016, the value of the global 3D printing industry had grown to an estimated $7.9 billion. Analysts project that by 2022, the 3D printing industry may be worth $33.58 billion.

Today, one of the areas in which 3D printing is making a mark is education; from primary to …

The world of 3D printing has expanded beyond the expectations of many in recent years. It doesn’t seem that long ago that major companies and academic institutions were the only ones with the resources and money for these printers invented by Charles “Chuck” Hull.

Even then, they were large 3D printing machines with slow processes and models that were a little rough around the edges. It didn’t take long before these devices hit the mainstream and became accessible, commercial devices for the home.

Now anyone can have a go at printing objects for sale, pieces of art and pieces of equipment. The trouble is that not everyone knows how. There is still a lot to understand and master for the perfect design and result. That is where the best resources …
