3d printing excels in its ability to output complex geometrical features that other conventional methods struggle with or simply can't produce. active print time can be as short as minutes.
depending on the function, there are many ways an object can be printed. an object can be printed whole, or the object can be segment-printed. the printing may be hollow or solid. other variables include material, layer thickness, minimum wall thickness, maximum build dimensions.
