The state of 3D printing in 2021

24 November 2021 Technical Literature

element14 has released a new eBook that offers insights into the history and the reality of 3D printing, including the processes, materials and applications – as well as what the future holds for this advancing technology.

The 3D printing industry has been developing rapidly over the past two decades and has moved beyond large corporations and industry-only tools to affordable models that can now be found in garages and home labs. As with any other technology, companies have taken advantage of innovations that have driven 3D printing into new areas and applications. There are 3D printers that produce different foods, including pizzas and others that build entire houses using massive robotic printers. The technology can be utilised for nearly anything and taken anywhere.

The new eBook explores how all this has been made possible, including a brief history of 3D printing, methods used to produce prints, slicing software and how it works, types of filaments used to make 3D models and their applications, current 3D printing technologies and how additive manufacturing is the future of 3D printing.
