At this point in your life, you’re sure to have at least heard about 3D printers, and the powers of 3D printing. And how could you not of? 3D printing is an astounding feat indeed. With 3D printers we now have the ability to print actual three dimensional items, and already has it become a controversy with people able to print out working guns. But how does a 3D printer work? How has science managed to create a machine that produces three dimensional items? And how many different brands of 3D printers are there? Well we’re here to answer.

3D printers may look almost identical to some normal printers, but how they work is actually much more difficult. A 3D printer creates 3D objects by using a special type of plastic to build up the object. The printer has a special head in it that goes layer by layer building up our object. Unfortunately right now though, your object can only be one or two colors, two colors only happening if you have a different color plastic to put in to change out the original one, while you’re having your printer create your object. For your object to be created though, you’ll need to tell the printer what exactly you want, and to have that happen you need to have your compute connected to it, so that you can tell the printer the exact design you want.

With 3D printing on the rise, consumers are being given many options to choose from when it comes to picking out a 3D printer, and if they are willing to put out the time and money to search for and purchase one, they’re sure to find the perfect 3D printer for their needs. Some of the more popular and common 3D printers include the…
