That backfired. obviously not my content, all credit to Jeroom.. Why not just print more clients? 3d printing

There are different kinds. The most common and the cheapest pretty much takes a string of plastic, heats it up, and layers it into the shape that you want. The product looks kind of terrible, and usually can only be one color. After that there are all kinds of different printers that all work in a specific material. Plastic, resin, metals, or epoxies.

They all work on basically the same principal though. The base layer is excreted/hardened/layed, allowed to dry, then the next layer goes down. Some materials dry/harden faster than others, so some printers are faster. Usually there is a setting that will allow the user to set the thickness of each layer. The thicker the layer, the less precise the product, the thinner the layer the more precise.

wrong, most machines now can work in many materials, hell, they have one for just over $1500 which can print anything from PLA and ABS to freaking wood fiber

also with dual and even tri extrusion parts installed you can print in multiple colors AND materials

also the products look fine, if a little rough, some sandpaper and maybe some plastic filler can make it into a finished part

their purpose or how they work?

Purpose: To create 3D objects. These objects are able to be extremely complex because they don't require to be machined (you don't put two parts together). This means you can have interlocking parts or rotating things that cannot be detached and even more.

How it works: There are multiple types of printers, but the one at my college worked as such. There are 2 different plastics. The first plastic is whitish and is what makes the finished product. The second plastic is black, and when placed in strong acid will be dissolved. This lets you create objects with vacuums in them and have them not collapse while printing.

A 3D printer will act just as a normal printer: it will go back and forth repeatedly, placing either white plastic or black plastic. After it finishes the first layer it will go again and make the second layer. At the end you will have a huge rectangular prism of white and black plastic. Place that in acid and after ~24 hours you will have your finished object.

Basically, they shoot tiny drops of plastic at various points to create an object layer by layer. Its really cool to see the ways my engineering class abuses several thousands of dollars of the school budget Not really, the teacher is the only one who can use it...

As far as i'm aware, they use some sort of generic substance to shape it into any desired shape, including fairly complex forms

i think they can only make singular solid objects at a time though. So in order to print a 3D printer, you have to individually print each component and part of it, and then manually put them together

They generally use some sort of thermoplastic, i.e. one that melts well, and basically paints with it with a very fine nozzel. Kind of like a hot glue gun, but with a much more controlled flow, and layer it until the model is made.
The main problem with something like this is that you cant print perfectly smooth things, and cant print stuff like wires or circuit boards.
Although eventually you probably will be able to.

Outdated information.
Smooth metal printing has been around. 3dsystems has amazing metal printers.
www.3dsystems.com/3d-printers/production/prox-300
Also printing simple circuit boards has been done, now only problem is resolution of the printer. As they go up, higher and higher quality of electronics will be printable.

Wow, that's awesome! Gotta love being wrong. As for metal printing, I thought it was only possible to print it in wax then metal cast it, but if I'm wrong I'm fine with that.

Metal printers are larger and not really for average pocket.
They are mostly used in industries that need quickly made prototypes. they get fine metal dust, that is heated and quickly applied.
Now mind you, you don't get a 100% of strength of that metal (closer to 85%), but good enough for prototypes and low stress testing.

they actually use 3D printing to make prototype parts for old cars where you cant get them anymore, the plastic is much more expendable than the metal is for prototyping
