“3D printing: what it is and an example of its use”


Over the past 20 years, 3D printing has evolved from a technology once used primarily by hobbyists to a mainstream prototyping and production tool. Spurred by the “maker movement” of the 2010s, 3D printing technology has been widely adopted in the education sector. As graduates have entered the workforce, 3D printing technology has now made its way into advanced manufacturing facilities for prototype iteration, jigs and fixtures, as well as production low number of parts. Although there are many types of 3D printing technologies, none is currently more prevalent than Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). This presentation will cover FDM technology use cases, materials, limitations, and equipment considerations, and highlight prototype iteration as one of the key benefits of the technology in manufacturing. peak today.
