3D Printing

This is a high level overview of 3D printing. It is an additive manufacturing method that enables the production of physical 3-dimensional objects from digital models. It's also the future.

By: Jason Youmans What is it? 3D printing is an additive manufacturing method that
enables the production of physical 3-dimensional objects
from digital models.

The Future. Printing Methods Extrusion
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

The first SLA product is produced by 3D Systems. Scientists engineer a miniature
functional kidney that is able to
filter blood and produce diluted
urine in an animal. Dr. Adrian Bowyer at University of Bath founds RepRap, an open-source initiative to build a 3D printer that can print most of its own components. Last year, a group of researchers at the Vienna University of Technology in Austria refined a 3D printing technique to create sophisticated structures (an F1 racecar and a cathedral) smaller than dust mites in about 4 minutes. Now a company called Nanoscribe has created a commercial printer with comparable capabilities. Doctors and engineers use a 3D printer to print a customized prosthetic lower jaw, which is implanted into an 83-year old woman suffering from a chronic bone infection.
