PART1

What Is 3D Printing?

Every topic needs some background information, and 3D printing is no different. In this part, you learn about the history of 3D printing, including how it was invented and how it entered the consumer space. You also learn about the different kinds of 3D printing technologies available, and the pros and cons of each.

This part also covers the principles behind how 3D printing actually works. In addition to how it works, I go over how it differs from other prototyping and manufacturing methods. This includes how 3D printing can be used by businesses, and what you can use it for personally.
