The technology in 3D Printing

3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.

    A workshop on 3D Printing with a focus on jobs and entrepreneurship was held at SIGA – Salesian Institute of Graphic Arts, Kilpauk, Chennai on November 22, 2017. The programme was inaugurated by Fr. P T Joseph, Principal of SIGA, with the blessings of Fr. Xavier Packia, Economer, following which four sessions were conducted.
