3D Printer

3D printing is mainly intended for prototyping, before launching mass production of an object. The parts are slightly resistant and can be used for light and non-structural applications. For example, you can make a coat rack or camera holder to hold a few books, but you wouldn’t make an axle holder for your car. In short, 3D printing is very useful in our wonderful geek world. We will be able to create our raspberry cases, boxes to store our screws or print more prosaically print a plastic Darth Vader head (who said it must be useful?).

In this category you will find tutorials, news and other good tips to get started in 3D printing. One of the most popular printers to start with is the Anet A8. I also succumbed to its small price and I will be able to tell you about my progress through various articles.

The first 3D printer was created by Charles W. (Chuck) Hull in the mid-1980s. It uses a technique called stereolithography, in which a UV laser is projected into an ultraviolet sensitive photopolymer vessel, tracing the object to be created on its surface.
