What's a 3D Printer?
  • A printer that creates an actual three dimensional model from a computer file. You can either create the file by using a program on a computer, or download a file from a website. The model is made when the printer, following the file's directions, lays down layer upon layer of plastic (filament) to form the desired shape.
