Description

3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing technology where a three-dimensional object is created by laying down successive layers of material. 3D printers are generally faster, more affordable, and easier to use than other additive manufacturing technologies. 3D printers offer product developers the ability to print parts and assemblies made of several materials with different mechanical and physical properties in a single build process. This module aims to introduce the learner to the history and background of 3D printing.
