Analysis of a 3D Systems Cube 3 3D Printer
Rolling Robots Team 7700R
Recent development in 3D printers increased access to rapid prototyping, and a whole new consumer market. Most consumer-end 3D printers use the technique FDM (fused deposition modeling), and works by laying layers of molten plastic on a platform.
This process, is common in the 3D printing industry, and is the most cost effective. Because we wanted to learn more about the
technology behind 3D printing, we have decided to take apart a 3D-Systems Cube, 3D printer.
