Anyone who deals with 3D printing will soon understand the future viability and possibilities it offers. Up to now, tinkerers and specialists usually deal with it, but the development does not stop at "Otto Normal".

How about small souvenirs for friends that you simply design yourself on your home PC and your new 3D printer simply prints for you at home? You need a birthday present and just can't find the right one in the store? Maybe the presentee will be happy about individually designed pastries from the 3D printer. The term "homemade" takes on a new dimension and is also something for the uninitiated. However, this is still future music, but it can already be heard in the distance. The development is in full swing and can no longer be stopped. more...

3D printers are among the technical achievements that have attracted a great deal of attention in recent years and that have triggered high hopes, especially among visionaries, for future revolutionary possibilities in the field of production. But many laypeople are still wondering: How does a 3D printer actually work? The following lines should shed some light on this. more...

Sinfully expensive or annoying tinkering? That was once the case. Now there are good 3D printers for model builders, beginners and the hobby sector for fair money.

Anyone who thinks 3D printing works like the print function in Word is ahead of the curve. Currently, it is still a complex issue to find the right printer, to search for models or to design them and to prepare them in such a way that a pretty - or at least usable - result emerges. more...

The number of additive manufacturing techniques in 3D printing has been growing steadily. More and more materials are available to choose from. In Berlin, for example, you can even get 3D-printed candy. The decisive factor for the right 3D printer material is the intended use. All variants have their specific strengths and weaknesses. The second factor to consider is the hardware: Not every printer can handle every 3D printer material. more...
