3D printing (also known as Additive Manufacturing) is the process of creating three-dimensional objects from a CAD model in a layer-by-layer manner. Today with the help of 3D Printing, one can make parts, appliances and tools in a wide variety of materials right from your home or workplace. Using a computer, simply create, modify or download a digital 3D model of an object. Click “print,” just as you would for a document, and watch your physical 3D object take shape. It is widely referred as the new industrial revolution with a range of applications covering aerospace, architecture, art & fashion, artificial organs, automobile, defense, edibles, electronics, medical implants etc. Though the technology has been around for some time, its true potential is beginning to make an impression with arrival of portable 3D printers and collaborative open course platforms.
