Creating Objects Directly Using 3D Printing Today As we discuss in Chapter 2, a number of different types of additive manufacturing are already available for use in directly manufacturing objects using plastic, resin, metal, and many other types of material. This lends itself to several obvious current-use applications, including prototyping, direct digital fabrication, and more. Rapid prototyping The earliest use of 3D printing was in the production of digitally-designed objects as prototypes of new designs before production begins.

New software is starting to handle full-color object designs, complex internal voids and structures, interlocking components in the same build volume, and the specified qualities of an object based on its unique materials mix at each point in the build. We discuss the software requirements and some of the options for 3D printing later in the book. Understanding material restrictions The variety of new materials that can be used in 3D printers is expanding too fast to enumerate here. In the year prior to the publication of this book, Objet PolyJet system alone exceeded 100 different types of materials.

Some 3D printers work across a level surface called the build plate, while others create objects atop successive layers of granulated material. The RepRap printers I show you how to build at the end of this book will be of two types: Cartesian (which uses motors to move in the X, Y, and Z directions, see Figure 2-2) and Delta (which relies on mechanical linkages to three motors to move an extruder around within the entire build volume). Even Delta-and Polar-type 3D printers still require X, Y, and Z coordinates into which they will extrude the build material for the final object.
