What is 3D Printing?

The earliest 3D printing technologies, visible in the late 1980’s, have come a long way. 3D printing is commonly referred to as “additive manufacturing”, where an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until complete. Think of each layer as a thinly sliced cross-section of the final object.

The Dremel 3D Idea Builder utilizes a specific technology called Fused Filament Fabrication. In this process, the printhead or “extruder” heats or “melts” a spool-fed filament so that it can be easily laid down. This heated filament then quickly cools and hardens so that the next layer can be applied.
