Kate Meckler Getting Involved with 3D Printing
I get asked by a lot of people – why is Kate Meckler getting involved with 3D printing?
If you don’t know about all the amazing benefits of 3D printing – you can read up here on Wikipedia.
Briefly, excerpting from Wikipedia:
“3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), refers to processes used to synthesize a three-dimensional object in which successive layers of material are formed under computter control to create an object. Objects can be of almost any shape or geometry and are produced from digital model data 3D model or another electronic data source such as an Additive Manufacturing File (AMF) file…. The term 3D printing has its origin sense, 3D printing in reference to a process that deposits a binder material onto a powder bed with inkjet printer heads layer by layer. More recently, the term is being used in popular vernacular to encompass a wider variety of additive manufacturing techniques. United States and global technical standards use the official term additive manufacturing for this broader sense. ISO/ASTM52900-15 defines seven categories of AM processes within its meaning: Binder Jetting, Directed Energy Deposition, Material Extrusion, Material Jetting, Powder Bed Fusion, Sheet Lamination and Vat Photopolymerization.“
Now that I spend time working on www.3dprint.com I am getting involved with developing online training courses for the site. Shortly we will introduce a range of courses for beginners to sophisticated users of additive manufacturing.
