I recently visited a warehouse/factory in Silverwater where they distribute 3D printers. I had heard a lot about them but was never quite sure how you could print a physical object using a printer and needed to explore this a little deeper. Come along and watch as Joe from Rapman demonstrates how these amazing machines work.
The products that can be created using these printers is most things you can design using a 3D Cumputer Aided Design program. The printer is fed with plastic and it melts the plastic and applies layer upon layer until a 3D product is produced.
