Study, Design and Fabrication of a 3D Printer

Nayak, Sarthak Arooni (2015) Study, Design and Fabrication of a 3D Printer. BTech thesis.



3D printing is called as desktop fabrication. It is a process of prototyping where by a structure is synthesized from a 3d model. The 3d model is stored in as a STL format and after that forwarded to a 3D printer. It can use a wide range of materials such as ABS, PLA, and composites as well.3D printing is a rapidly developing and cost optimized form of rapid prototyping. The 3D printer prints the CAD design layer by layer forming a real object. 3D printing process is derived from inkjet desktop printers in which multiple deposit jets and the printing material, layer by layer derived from the CAD 3D data. 3D printing significantly challenges mass production processes in the future. This type of printing is predicted to influence industries, like automotive, medical, education, equipment, consumer products industries and various businesses
