Hi Folks, I remember explaining a Tech Blogger about 3d Printing and he could not grasp the idea that something real and physical can be made on a printer. While explaining the concept of 3d Printing I realized that if I had a 3D Printer to show him how make objects outs of thin air it would be lot more easier for me to teach him the technology behind it. 3d Printing is a difficult thing to explain to someone who has never seen a 3D Printer. Maker’s Asylum which is a non profit community place has made this difficult task a reality. If You want to Learn 3D Printing its a perfect place to start from.
