3D printing, or additive manufacturing, has been around since the late 1980's and through strategic advancements in the last decade, has become affordable and practical for consumers. 3D printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. Its uniquely integrated solutions replace and complement traditional methods of manufacturing and reduce the time and cost of designing new products by printing real parts directly from digital input. These solutions are used to rapidly design, create, communicate, prototype or produce real parts, empowering customers to create and make with confidence.
