3D Printing is the art of making a digital model into a real object. It is called additive manufacturing because the object is created by adding layers one over the other until the object is formed, unlike traditional methods where an object is being carved out from a solid and given the desired shape.
3D Printing is an emerging industry. It has its applications in various fields like prototyping and manufacturing, construction, education, medical and many others. There are a lot of 3D printers available now in the market which helps in creating objects very easily and conveniently.
