What is 3D printing?

3D printers build up objects from scratch, we call this process “additive manufacturing” and it is done one layer at a time (see Fig. 1).

Some 3D printers can print in full color in plastic, others can print in metal or a flexible material similar to rubber. To print in these materials and more check out our 3D printing partners below.

3D print at home

If you have a 3D printer of your own, you will be interested in the Autodesk 3D Print Utility.

This piece of software seamlessly connects the 123D family of design software with a number of popular 3D printers, including Makerbots.

It installs automatically when you install any of the 123D family, or choose the 3D print at home option from the online applications.

Seamless printing is not the whole story: the Autodesk 3D Print Utility will analyze your file and suggest changes to improve print quality, such as changing the orientation or thickening thin parts.
