“From aircraft units, car parts to musical instruments, 3D printing technology is pushing the limits of what can be made out of materials. While relatively young, this new technique has established itself as one of the most shocking but creative technologies in decades. According to consultancy Statista, the global 3D printing industry‘s output value is projected to reach 23 billion U.S. dollars by 2022. 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital profile. It is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing that features hollowing out a piece of material with a milling machine.”
