Abstract: Three-dimensional (3D) printing allows digital 3D models to be converted into physical ones with unprecedented accessibility. It has been hailed as a “disruptive technology” — a term used to describe advances that could change the status quo. The technology involves building 3D structures by depositing material layer upon layer to form a 3D object. This process is achieved via several ways, most commonly via fused deposition modelling (FDM), selective laser sintering and stereolithography.
