3D printing is the technique of printing an object using additive processes that involve laying down of successive layers of material for creation of an object. The object so created can be thinly sliced into a horizontal cross-section for viewing the different layers. Before a structure is printed, its model is prepared on a software. The model is then divided into thousands of horizontal layers by a process called slicing. These slices are then fed into a 3D printer and the structure is printed. 3D metal printing is gaining popularity as metals offer a unique combination of properties to suit different applications. The advantage of using this technique is that it does away with a majority of the wasteful process. For instance, almost 90% of material is put to waste when aircraft is manufactured. The 3D metal printing technique uses less energy and reduces waste. Moreover, the structure so created is almost 60% lighter in weight.
