3D Printing is also known as Additive Manufacturing (AM), it used to create a three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file.

3D Printing is the opposite of Subtractive Manufacturing which is cutting out and hollowing out a piece of metal or plastic with for instance a milling machine.

The term “3D Printing” referred to a process that deposits a binder material onto a powder bed with inkjet printer heads layer by layer.

There are different 3D Printing Technologies and materials we can print with the same principle: ‘A Digital Model is turned into a solid Three-Dimensional physical object by adding material layer by layer’.

 

A Brief History of 3D Printing

3D Printing is not as new ‘futuristic’ concept. It has been around for more than 30 years.

 SLA-1, the first 3D printer invented by Charles Hull in 1986SLA-1, the first 3D printer invented by Charles Hull in 1986

The First 3D Printing are granted to Dr.Kodama for his development of a rapid prototyping technique in 1980.

Later, Charles Hull was interested in this technology and deposited a first patent for Stereolithography (SLA) in 1986. He founded the 3D systems corporation and a year later, he released the SLA-1.

In 1988, at the University of Texas, Carl Deckard brought a patent for the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) Technology, Another 3D Printing in which powder grains are fused together locally by a laser.

In mean time, Scott Crump filed a patent for Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM). It is the Third of the main 3D printing Technologies.

In 2009, when the FDM patents expired, 3D Printing became such a hot topic that it was easy to believe it was abrand new innovation.

We at NEXAMS, a Bangalore based 3D Printing Services Company, using SLS, FDM, SLA, DLMS and Polyjet machines to produce precise, strong and great value parts for all of your rapid prototyping requirements.
