3D printing, or “cumulative manufacturing”, is the process of manufacturing solid 3D objects using computer programs (a digital file) and then printing (manufacturing) them by a 3D printer. It is one of the milestones of the technological revolution of the modern era, as it has made its breakthrough in many fields and industrial sectors, and has proven its promising capabilities in several fields. 3D printing makes it possible to produce very complex shapes using a smaller number of materials, unlike traditional manufacturing methods.
