3D Printers are a type of machine used to create three-dimensional objects. They are usually used in many industries like aerospace, medical, architecture, engineering, and manufacturing. 3D Printers use CAD programs like Solidworks or AutoCAD to create 3D models which are then used to print out a part or product. Using a variety of materials such as plastics, metal, and other composites, they are capable of creating objects of nearly any shape and dimension.
Accessory items that are used with 3D Printers include spool material, like plastic and infused materials, filament, and supporting structures or scaffolds. These components are used to create and support the objects being printed. Filament helps to form the three-dimensional shape of the object, while the other materials help with the strength and durability of the finished product. Finally, 3D Printers may also require support structures to help secure and maintain the printed parts. By using these components and accessories, 3D printing is able to produce technically accurate and intricate parts which would otherwise be difficult to fabricate with traditional methods.
