3D Printing (3993-3D)
3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), refers to various processes used to synthesize a three-dimensional object. In 3D printing, successive layers of material are formed under computer control to create an object. These objects can be of almost any shape or geometry and are produced from a 3D model or other electronic data source. A 3D printer is a type of industrial robot. Using the power of the Internet, it is possible to send a blueprint of any product to any place in the world to be replicated by a 3D printer with elemental inks capable of being combined into any desired form. 3D printers come in many shapes and sizes, but one thing is certain - they all have a print bed. Print beds can be made of different materials, such as acrylic, G-10.FR4 or Phenolic, usually with an added compound layered across where your filament will stick. Kapton® tape is a high temperature adhesive tape with a translucent gold tint that works great for ABS filament. It is famously used on spacecraft, but also makes a good protective surface for 3D printing. Ultem® Film is another high performance material used for 3D printing beds for printing of both ABS and PLA.
