What is 3D printing?

3D printing is an alternative name to additive manufacturing and is not limited to plastics, metals and ceramics. It is typically used to create an object (eg an engineering part) layer by layer using laser technologies.

3D printing is suitable for low volume runs and unusual shaped objects. It can reduce time to produce the object over conventional methods.
