3D printing, or so-called "cumulative manufacturing" is the process of making solid 3D objects using computer programmes (a digital file) and then printing (manufacturing) them by a 3D printer. It is one of the landmarks of the technological revolution in the modern era, as it broke into many industrial fields and sectors, and has proved its promising capabilities in several areas. 3D printing helps produce very complex shapes using a smaller number of materials, unlike traditional manufacturing methods.
