At A Glance: 3D Printing

3D printing is one of the newest printing techniques invented and is already taking the world by storm. 3D printing is the procedure of making a three-dimensional solid object from a digital file and is also known as additive manufacturing. The printer accepts a virtual design of the item via a computer-aided design (CAD) file created through a special 3D modeling program that can either blueprint a totally new object or take a scan of an existing one. The printer then prints thin, horizontal slices of the object, one layer at a time, and constructs it by building these layers on top of each other.

While sounding relatively straightforward, the newness of the technology and the finesse needed to work with the various programs involved means that many businesses hire 3D printing professionals and designers on Upwork to create their 3D objects. Due to the ever-evolving software and hardware that accompanies 3D printing, it often takes a professional designer to be able to get the most from their investment. New developments such as Microsoft’s Kinect will soon lead to the creation of handheld devices that will 3D print as well as numerous other developments, and this means a freelance specialist at the cutting edge of the technology is the perfect person to collaborate with on any project. That way, no matter what the object a business requires to be 3D printed, the right software and hardware can be used for the job, saving expensive mistakes and purchases made in error.
