Short and Sweet: 3D Printing in a Nutshell

Our overview gives a quick insight into 3d-printing basics and the future-oriented technology of additive manufacturing

What is 3D Printing?

3D Printing or Additive Manufacturing is the process of creating an object layer by layer, unlike traditional manufacturing processes where an object is created from a solid block by removing material. This reverse process is very beneficial for applications in a variety of fields such as medical, aerospace, automotive, design and architecture.

How Does 3D Printing Work?

The starting point for 3D printing is a digital model, usually a 3D CAD model, which is virtually sliced and converted into a file that the 3D printer can read. Layer by layer, the printer then creates the predefined shape. Since the parts can be printed directly, it is possible to produce very complex objects, in some cases even with built-in functions.

3D Printing Materials

There are 3D printers for a wide range of materials and applications. The best-known entry-level variant is FDM. Here, ABS or PLA plastic is melted by the print head and extruded onto the printer bed. Other 3D printers process powdered materials such as nylon, plastic or metal, which are sintered or melted by a laser. The same technique is also used for 3D printing with resin (SLA).
At EOS, we rely on the pioneering technologies SLS and DMLS, which do not require any support structures. An SLS 3D printer selectively melts a powdered plastic material to build a component layer by layer. DMLS uses powdered metal alloy as printing material

Benefits and Global Impact

Industrial 3D printing gives your company immense competitive advantages that go beyond rapid prototyping: local on-demand spare parts production, customized products, lightweight construction, functional integration, you name it. 3D printing reduces stock piling, helps alleviate supply chain constraints and supports the move toward a more sustainable business. And that’s just the beginning.
