                             3D Printing

3D printing is also known as additive manufacturing or rapid prototyping. It is a technology where a three dimensional object is created by laying down successive layers of material. 3D printers are generally faster, more affordable and easier to use than other additive manufacturing technologies.
 
3D printers offer product developers the ability to print parts and assemblies made of several materials with different mechanical and physical properties in a single build proccess. Advanced 3D printing technologies yield models that can serve as product prototypes.
 
Since 2003 there has been a large growth in the sale of 3D printers. Additionally, the cost of 3D printers has declined. The technology also finds use in the fields of jewelry, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction, automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering and many others.

Below are several reports on advancements made in 3D printing technology.
