About

Look at any manmade object and try to envision the planning that brought this concept to reality. Imagine the geometrical shapes and measurements drafted on paper or designed with computer aide. Had you seen these plans before that physical object were created, would your mind have been able to conceive it exactly? 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is the new way to turn dreams into reality. Join us as we explore this topic.
