3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing) is the process of making three-dimensional solid objects from digital designs. With the number of desktop 3D printers sold annually expected to grow by an amazing 750% by 2019, combined with the rapid increase in the number of different machines available on the market over the last two years, it’s clear many consumers are simply becoming overwhelmed.
