3D printers are mainly used in the production and development of prototypes, or in product development. A 3D printer allows you to easily print products, models or items. But this has nothing in common with a regular printer. A 3D printer builds your product layer by layer. Your device receives the data for the creation from a 3D software and your created 3D model. Filaments, liquids or powders are the main materials used for production.
Well-known brands in 3D printing are Ultimaker, Formlab and Wanhao.
Areas of application for 3D printing are primarily in product design, architecture or medical products.
