Transcript of 3D Printers

Small Business
3D printers can help a small business cut down on cost by eliminating the “middle man.”
Decreasing the cost of manufacturing allows you to bring down the price of your product making you more marketable.
A jewelry business claims that 3D printing doubled their sales because it allowed them to offer their customers customization options at a more affordable price than any other jewelry store.
History of 3D Printers
The earliest 3D printing technologies first became visible in the late 1980’s
They were originally conceived as a fast and more cost-effective method for creating prototypes for product development within industry

The first patent was issued for stereolithography apparatus (SLA) in 1986 by Charles Hull.

History of 3D Printers
One of the most notable moves was the acquisition of Makerbot by Stratasys.

In 2013 there was huge advances in 3D printing technology

Stereolithography(SLA)- SLA 3D printers
work with excess of liquid plastic that
after some time hardens and forms into
solid object.

Selective Laser Sintering
Selective laser melting
SLS is a technique that uses laser as power source to form solid 3D objects.
SLS is a technique that uses laser as power source to form solid 3D objects.
SLM is a technique that also uses 3D CAD data as a source and forms 3D object by means of a high-power laser beam that fuses and melts metallic powders together.
Electronic Beam Melting
Sugar printers
Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.
A 3D printer is:
In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created.
The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes.
Sharing your work
ShapeWay is a website where consumers can order or buy 3D printed objects or models.If you do not have your own 3D printer they will print it for you.
EBM is another type of additive manufacturing for metal parts. It was originally coined by Arcam AB Inc. in the beginning of this century.

3D printing has many applications. From culinary fields to the medical fields, this additive process is changing the way the world works.
3D Sugar Printer prints objects in layers of sugar.
