What is 3d Printing?
3D printing is the process where a 3D design (created in Maya 3D, 3Ds MAX or other 3D software) is turned into a real object. Traditionally, 3D printing has been used for industrial design prototypes (electronics, car design, etc) but nowadays, 3D printing is also used in contemporary toy design.
