Hi

3D printing involves printing out actual 3D images. Unlike the normal 2D ones, they look like real-life images. The main benefits of 3D printing are high speed, increased innovation, versatility and low cost. The ability of imagination of man will also increase with this new innovation as we can actually bring to life whatever we imagine and hence, experiment with the same.

AM or Additive Manufacturing is the other term for 3D printing. It refers to a variety of processes used to fuse a three-dimensional object. Consecutive layers of material are shaped under computer control to form an object. The objects can be of almost any shape or geometry and created from a 3D model or other electronic data source.

A 3D printer used in 3D printing is a type of industrial robot. Jeremy Rifkin, a futurologist, believes that 3D printing indicates the start of a third industrial revolution following the production line assembly that conquered manufacturing beginning in the late 19th century. The terms 3D printing and additive manufacturing back in the early 2010s developed senses in which they were synonymous umbrella terms for all AM technologies.

You can create 3D printable models using CAD or Computer Aided Design package by means of a 3D scanner or a simple digital camera and a photogrammetry software. Before you can print a 3D model from an STL file, it has to be analyzed first for errors.

Actually, the majority of the CAD software produced errors in the STL files like holes, noise shells, faces normals, self-intersections, or various errors.
