The growth and development of new 3D printing methods have given birth to a new printable dimension. 4D printing seeks to change many industries by embedding functions into printed objects in a seemingly ever-expanding number of applications.
3D printing refers to the process of creating a three-dimensional object by stacking layers of material. The process was first developed in the 1980s and since then 3D printing has grown more useful as the sophistication of printers and the materials that can be printed grows. ESi utilizes 3D printing to make demonstrative and functional objects. From scale models to functional courtroom exhibits, ESi continues to see innovative ways 3D printing can be used in a high-stakes teaching environment.
