3D printing is a process that creates solid objects based on a three-dimensional digital design. Although there are numerous 3D printing processes and materials that can be used, all current 3D printers are founded on the same principle: a three-dimensional physical object is created by adding material, layer by layer.

Using a 3D printer offers numerous advantages over conventional production methods, including the ability to fabricate intricate custom designs, lower fixed costs, faster prototyping and less waste. Drawbacks for the process include a lack of scalability, limited material choices and less structural integrity than objects made by more conventional means.
