How Does A 3D Printer Work?

Working Principle
What is 3D printing? People who have heard of a 3D printer for the first time think it is a very magical thing, but the working principle of 3d printer is very simple. It is basically the same as a traditional printer in a print shop or office. It is also superimposed little by little with the materials ejected by the nozzle. It is only that 3D printing does not spray ink, but liquid or powder, resin, and other printing materials. Molding equipment using light-curing and paper layer stacking technologies. The “printing materials” are superimposed layer by layer through computer control, and after the printing is completed, the printed model can be taken out.

Design Model
Anything that can be seen and imagined can be achieved through 3D printing technology. First, we can download a model from a 3D printing-related website, of course, we can also use any CAD design software, such as UG, 3Dmax, and other software to design a model we like.

Print Model
Then through the 3D printer’s own model processing software, the 3D model is sliced in layers. The thickness of each slice can be as thin as 14 microns. The sliced file forms a digital code. The sliced file is input to the 3D printer and heated The nozzle of the 3D printer, up to 200 degrees Celsius, reads the model file, uses consumables to print, sprays the material layer by layer, and solidifies it. When the code file is run, the model is printed.
