The Emerging Role of 3D Printing in Architecture

Most people know that 3D printing is having a profound effect on the industrial and manufacturing sectors. But fewer are aware that the technology is also revolutionizing other areas of the economy. Among the lesser-known sectors for 3D printing is architecture. Today, architects are using additive manufacturing to aid them in everything from conceptualization to […]

The Next Generation of 3D Printable Materials for Home Printing

3D printing has already come a long way. In 1983 pioneering inventor Chuck Hull developed the first stereolithography device that used UV rays. This process hardened resins layer-by-layer into 3D objects. Since that time, the technology has not only become applicable to a wide range of new materials but has also brought the ability to […]

History of 3D Printing

3D printing uses computer technology to create 3-dimensional solid objects. 3D printing combines the additive process or layering the material in thin horizontal cross-sections, and the computer program to print solid objects. You can create almost anything from 3D printing including toys, guns, or machine parts. The history of 3D printing is important to understanding […]
