3D Printing

Manufacturing that comes in many forms, of which I have gotten to try only a few.

The prospect of creating unique objects from a single process has been elusive, but relatively recently, 3D printing has been opened up to the masses. It really is a lovely process that opens up the realm of creativity. Of the variety of 3D manufacturing techniques, two dominate the consumer market: fused deposition modeling (FDM) and stereolithography (SLA). Another notable method at this time is selective laser sintering (SLS). Their respective output materials, generally, are plastic, resin, and plastic or metal.
