The Wondrous World of 3d printing
A new amazing invention Just how many things can it do???
What is a 3D printer?/ What do they do?
3d Printing is used to make different objects such as parts to ships,toys or even food! There are different types
Digital Light Processing(DLP)
Fused deposition modeling (FDM)
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
Selective laser melting (SLM)
Electronic Beam Melting (EBM)
- Laminated object manufacturing (LOM
They either use a laser to cut out metal shapes or droplets of a material that eventually form the object.
What can you print with a 3d printer?
Almost anything you can imagine it uses a melted substance that can be almost anything. It can be food such as pizza dough or chocolate or it could be plastic or metal to build almost any object.
How big can they be?
The largest 3d printer that was built to print houses it is huge. It is 12 m x 12 m x 12 m. This means we soon will be able to print almost anything of our choice. Even houses and cars because of the metal 3D printers. The materials needed to use to make it is $408.5 million a lot of money for one house!
