If you have seen our earlier post “The different kinds of 3D printers” you should start to realize just how fast 3D printing is taking over the world. But if you still are skeptical and doubt the new revolution, here comes another excellent introduction of the different kinds of 3D printing technologies, all thanx to ExplainingTheFuture. This new democratization of manufacturing is spreading all over the world like wildfire, and you don’t want to miss out! However, not everyone can afford an own personal 3D printer, or doesn’t have enough use for one to rationalize the cost. If you are one of these people, you will be pleased to know that you can find other people in your area with a 3D printer that are willing to print out your object for a charge, simply by visiting 3dhubs! You can even use it to make your own handy mascot by downloading the 3D models for free and ask someone to print it out for you!
3D printing is becoming more and more common these days, in fact you can use the 3D Hubs website to find a person with a 3D printer near you today! But most of the privately owned 3D printers are of the FDM type (Fused deposition modeling) which has some limitations. So how do you know which type of 3D printers would be best for your object? ExplainingTheFuture has done the groundwork and examine the pro’s and con’s of the different types of printers, to make your choice easier!
