Transcript of 3D Printing

Guillem Vallicrosa & Raquel Gil 3D PRINTING What is 3D printing? A little bit of history Early examples of 3D printing occurred in the 1980s, though the printers then were large, expensive and highly limited in what they could produce.

The term "3D printing" was coined at MIT in 1995 when then graduate students Jim Bredt and Tim Anderson modified an inkjet printer to extrude a binding solution onto a bed of powder, rather than ink onto paper. The ensuing patent led to the creation of modern 3D printing companies Z Corporation (founded by Bredt and Anderson) and ExOne. Example: Torus Design Choose
