3D printing is a process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital model.


Objects are created by laying down successive layers of material. This is performed by a materials printer using digital technology.  


A design file is sent to the 3D printer, then a specific material is chosen to use. Depending on the printer, this material can be rubber, plastics, paper, polyurethane-like materials, metals and more.

He also talks with Zebra Images about their hologram printing technology, and gets a 3D scan of himself with the folks from Lynx Laboratories
