We know that 3D printing is becoming a revolution and many people are probably wondering how this production process works and more importantly, why do we use this production process.
That's why we decided to write this post, where you can find all the information you need to know about this process and its advantages.
WHAT IS IT?
3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes.
1 – The first layer is added to the printer platform.
2 – The adhesive is added to the layer.
3 – Printer applies heat and pressure to bond the layers.
4 – The printer repeats the process with the next layers.
5 – The object is created!
You will see ar your dotts that each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.
WHICH ARE SOME OF THE 3D PRINTING ADVANTAGES?
It allows complete customization of designs.
It increases your production speed since printers are working 24/7.
It brings the company the opportunity to reuse and recycle materials.
It involves less production cost than traditional methods.
It consumes 65% less energy than traditional manufacturing
It allows you to create complex shapes using less material
