3D printing can refer to a variety of processes in which material is deposited, joined or solidified under computer control to create a three-dimensional object, with material being added together, typically layer by layer.
The printer used for all of my work is a Creality CR-10 FDM printer using PLA filament.
An FDM printer (Fused deposition modeling), also known as fused filament fabrication (FFF), is the most widely used type of 3D printer at the consumer level. FDM 3D printers work by extruding thermoplastic filaments, such as ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) or PLA (Polylactic Acid), through a heated nozzle, melting the material and applying the plastic layer by layer to a build platform. Each layer is laid down one at a time until the part is complete.
