Types of 3D printing

************* This page is under construction *************

  • Filament based Printing:
    • A thin strand of material is pushed through a heated tip that lays a thin bead of plastic to form the profile of the object, layer by layer.
    • FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling). 
  • Powder Printing
    • Thin layer of material onto which glue or binder is sprayed to harden areas, very similar to the way a 2d inkjet printer sprays ink on a sheet of paper
    • CJP, most close to SLS printing.
  • Resin printing.
