What is 3D Printing?
3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, is a process for making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down many successive thin layers of a material.

3D printing is becoming more common everyday. The technology is evolving fast and OTs need to jump on board! You do NOT need technical design skills! Only an idea and a few minutes to watch beginner-level online tutorials.


Desktop printers currently range from ~$400-$3000, but you do NOT need to own a printer. For example, my local public library charges just $.06 per gram of plastic used.
Change objects to fit your specific needs. Adjust & readjust. Let clients participate in the process, choose their colors or design elements, and suggest improvements.
