Hobbyist 3D Printing Basics

  1. 1. John Abella
  2. 2. Basics Additive process, not subtractive. We build up material in the exact shape, rather than carving the piece out of a larger block. Additive = less waste, less mess
  3. 3. Basics Subtractive Additive
  4. 4. Basic Types Fused Desposition Granular Material + Binder Photopolymer
  5. 5. Fused Deposition http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:FDM_by_Zureks.png
  6. 6. Plastic Types Common:  ABS (Lego plastic)  PLA (Biodegradable, corn-based) Uncommon:  PVA  Nylon  HIPS  Polycarbonate
  7. 7. How Much? Kits:  $600 or less: Solidoodle / PrintrBot  $1500 or less: Ultimaker / MakerGear M2 / Type A – Series 1 / 3D Systems Cube / Afinia Type H  $2200 or less: MakerBot Replicator 2 But there’s another option…
