    What Is the 3D Manufacturing Format?

    • September 11, 2020

    3D printers rely on files to build objects using raw material. There are many different types of 3D printers, including fused filament fabrication (FFF), selective laser melting, selective laser sintering and electron beam melting. Regardless of the type, though, they are all guided via a model file. These files can’t use just any format. Rather,
