The Historical Development Of 3D Printing

wallpapers Resource 2020-11-27
3D printing technology appeared in the mid-1990s and is actually the latest rapid prototyping device using light curing and paper lamination technologies. It is basically the same as ordinary printing. The printer contains liquid or powder and other "printing materials". After connecting to the computer, the "printing materials" are superimposed layer by layer through computer control, and finally the blueprint on the computer is turned into a real object. This printing technology is called 3D printing technology.
