3D printing or, a bit more technically phrased, Additive Manufacturing, may be on everyone’s lips and quietly revolutionizing the world, but in fact, it’s quite old hat. It was invented in 1981 and in 1988 you could buy the first device. Since that time a lot has been done and in the professional world as well as in the hobby industry we have come a long way. Currently, you can get a reliable 3D printer with a “monstrous” space of 300x300x400 for just €250 delivered home directly from China. The results are impressive, especially you compare it to the price of the device. Also impressive is the very simple technique with which you can obtain very good results, these days.
