3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of creating three dimensional solid objects from a digital file using additive methods. An additive method involves the making of an object by laying down successive layers of a particular material- a layer at a time- until the entire object is created. The objects are built up without any cutting; drilling or machining- which is why the industrial version of 3D printing is also called additive manufacturing (AM). Each constructed layer can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.
