What is 3D Printing and How do I get Started?!

 What is 3D Printing and How do I get Started?!@ www.MakerGeeks.com 3D Printing – also referred to as Additive Manufacturing, or Rapid Prototyping – is a process whereby three-dimensional (3D) physical objects are created from using virtual designs which are transformed into solid objects by using a 3D printer.


How does it work A 3D printer takes digital input from computer aided design (CAD) and transforms this into physical three-dimensional objects through the process of additively layering materials (filament) until the object is complete. That explains why 3D printing is also referred to as Additive Manufacturing.

There are several technologies available to do additive manufacturing, or 3D printing. They differ in the way layers are built to create objects and materials that can be used. The vast majority of desktop 3D printers make use of a method whereby materials are melted or softened in order to produce successive layers. This method is called Fused Filament …

D4 Printer Bot | 3D Printer | Dual Extruder 3D Printer

Home > What New & HOT > D4 Printer Bot | 3D Printer | Dual Extruder 3D Printer D4 Printer Bot | 3D Printer | Dual Extruder 3D Printer Item# 3D_Printer Regular Price: $1,995.97 MakerGeeks Price: $1,455.95 Availability: Usually ships in 5-7 business days 1 MakerGeeks DescriptionThe D4 Printer Bot is our first dedicated 1.75 mm filament extruder. This extruder was designed from scratch, and contains a number of custom manufactured parts. We’ve learned a lot over our past extruder designs, and incorporated a lot of those lessons here: that’s why it’s smaller, lighter, and faster to build. And since it’s designed from the ground up for 1.75 mm filament, it’s light-years ahead of past designs in small-filament reliability.

The layer alignment is much better which results in nicer prints and higher resolution, 100 micron inch.
We’ve completely overhauled the drive system to give the optimum positioning accuracy. The entire system has been upgraded to sturdy 3/8″ diameter linear shaftin…
