What is 3D printing?
3D printing or additive manufacturing(AM) is a process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file.
The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced cross-section of the object.
3D printing is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing which is cutting out / hollowing out a piece of metal or plastic with for instance a milling machine.
Why do you need 3D printing
55-75% cheaper to produce parts compared with CNC milling”
No Tooling Costs! — Easy Design Modifications — Batch Production On-demand
Generic AM process
AM involves a number of steps that move from the virtual CAD description to the physical resultant part. (If you like to learn more about AM process click here).
Don't worry you need not do all the steps you just send us the STL files we do the rest.

What is FDM?
Fused deposition modeling, or FDM 3D Printing, is a method of additive manufacturing where layers of materials are fused together in a pattern to create an object. The material is usually melted just past its glass transition temperature, and then extruded in a pattern next to or on top of previous extrusions, creating an object layer by layer.

Quick batch production
Test large models with different materials
Mechanically stronger parts
DLP is one of the Photopolymerization 3D printing techniques. For the DLP 3D printing process, a digital projector screen is used to flash a single image of each layer across the entire platform at once. Because the projector is a digital screen, the image of each layer is composed of square pixels, resulting in a layer formed from small rectangular bricks called voxels. DLP can achieve faster print times for some parts, as each entire layer is exposed all at once, rather than drawn out with a laser.
