Abstract

The 3D‐printing process involves making a three‐dimensional solid object from a digital design/model. It leads a revolution in today's manufacturing industry. A 3D model is implemented via computer‐aided design software and then sent to the 3D printer. The printer sets down layers of filament materials to build the model from a series of cross‐sections. Various 3D‐printing methods have been invented since the 1970s. The whole 3D‐printing process is explained in brief in Exhibit 1.
