Motion Control in 3D Printing

3D (three-dimensional) printing, also known as 3D fabrication, refers to methods and processes of creating, modeling, and/or prototyping various objects for further use or analysis. Various methods for the manufacturing of these objects will typically include polymers or metal powders. Starting with a computer-driven set of instructions, the machines ‘print’ successive layers of material while applying hardening source (UV light, lasers, etc.) until object formation is complete.
