But the question still lingered, “How can it be possible to print something in a 3D format?” Well fast forward to the present, the question has been answered. The 3D Printer was invented. Some may say “3D PRINTER?!?!?! HOW CAN THAT BE POSSIBLE?!”
It’s very possible, and it has many elaborate steps and complicated building and operation processes. 3D printing also has many real world uses for instance in the medical field, military use, or just everyday civilian use. In the eyes of many the 3D printer is the most technologically advanced invention ever conceived. But how did the first 3D printer come about? What was the need for a 3D printer anyway? And most of all how does a 3D printer even work? There are fairly simple answers to each of these questions.
Printing came about in 1439 when Johannes Gutenberg created the printing press. It used oil based ink and was similar to the agricultural screw press of the same time period.
