The Basics: What is 3D printing?

 In How, What & Why

The Oxford English Dictionary defines 3D printing as “The action or process of making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down many thin layers of a material in succession.” As for the 3D printers that work with MyStemKits, you can think of them essentially as hot glue guns controlled by computers, laying down thin layers of plastic in succession to create an object.
