Dr. 3 D Printer (What is 3D printing and how does it work)


In our Dr. 3D Printer series, we always take specialist advise and take it as it is. 3D Printing is still unknown for us. We are still in learning stage. If we find anything related to 3D Printing. We try to share with everybody.

In this video comments are describing the material and process very well. I am using the comments here.

Materials can range from plastics and polymers to metals and even organic materials like foodstuff and human tissue (in fact, hospitals are expecting 3d printers to be able to reproduce body parts and organs reliably in the near future, mitigating the need for donors and artificial prosthetic)! There are a LOT of different types of 3D printers out there, and different printing processes are suited to working with different materials.

Ever seen 3D printed food? now that’s amazing in my opinion. Of course, in 20 years we will all be laughing at this just like how we laughed at a computer that took up an entire room yet, we now have cell phones more powerful than that. 🙂

ΣThe Green 3d Print


According to Dr. Joshua Pearce, ” he is the professor at Michigan Technological University, “The Professor has worked to develop Eco-friendly techniques for 3D printing.  His technique reduces carbon footprint.  Professor Pearce has developed a “Recyclebot” to create plastic filament using recycled milk jugs.  3D printers use this material for creating structures.   His study found that using recycled materials at home to create filament uses one-fortieth the amount of energy it would take to create it commercially”.
