Amazing Science: 3D Printing Postings | MelissaRossman |

3D printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model using additive processes, where an object is created by laying down successive layers of material. 3D printing is considered distinct from traditional machining techniques which mostly rely on the removal of material by drilling, cutting etc (subtractive processes). 3D printing is used in the fields of industrial design, architecture, engineering, automotive, aerospace, many dental / medical applications, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering, and many others.
