What is 3D Printing?
3D printing is the creation of a digital design into a physical object. Our particular specialty is FDM or Fused Deposition Modeling. What that means is that the object is created layer by layer, starting from the bottom working up. The layers are created by melting plastic through an extruder and onto a build platform. There are many different types of plastics that one could use depending on the application of the object. The technology has come a long way to make the process really easy for a user and also a lot of fun! You can create whatever your hearts desire! Here is a short animation showing the process.
We are doing some really exciting work with 3D Printer OS! 3D Printer OS is a full service 3D Printer management package that works over the cloud. Slice, store designs, edit, track usage, even have a live camera feed to your machines! This software is absolutely cutting edge and amazing!
