3D Printing Introduction

In an effort to help our clients envision our designs Innova bought a Flashforge Creator Pro 3D printer. 3D printing technology is still at it's infancy. This printer reminds me of the old pen plotters. It has two nozzles that extrudes melted plastic along a 2d plane. The base plate then moves down a layer and it forms the next layer. There are a couple different types of plastic you can use in these types of 3d printers. We are currently using ABS plastic. 3d printing is an art that takes practice and knowledge to master. Not every object is ideal for this type of 3d printing.
