What is 3D printing and how does it work? It is a process for making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model. This is typically done by laying down many successive thin layers (stacking) of material such as Fused Deposition Modeling Thermoplastic (FDM) and using Stereolithography Apparatus (SLA) which is a cured resin system whereby a laser emits light that hardens the resin into a specific shape or design. In other words, if one can dream it, “it” can be designed and digitally produced and when applicable, brought to market quicker. Imagine the possibilities. Everything from widgets to fashion couture – if one can dream it, the Stax3D team can design and deliver it, precisely, quickly and impressively.
