3D Printing consists of any information related to additive manufacturing . This is a process where material deposits build up a surface or create an object. 3D Printing has been empowered through open source technology where the community is able to contribute.
Your workshop or garage is home to many tools and materials to make things. Since 3D printer has undergone community involvement thanks to the rep-rap (rapid prototyping) this technology is more accessible. Many tinkerers, makers and inventors now have a 3D printer in their workshop. An inventor already has the ability to visualize complex solutions to difficult problems. Add in the 3D printing technology and the inventor can now solve difficult problems in even more complex ways.
