What are some of the benefits a 3d printer brings?
The answer, it seems, is more bang for your buck.
With an open-source 3D printing platform, companies like THUNDERBOLT are finding a new way to make affordable, high-quality parts.
The company’s Thunderbolt 3D software is available for free download, and its fan control software is open source too.
But the software isn’t just for hobbyists; THUNTERBOLTS can also be used for serious 3d printing needs.
THUNKERS, as THUNKER is the company, is a 3-axis CAD printer that uses an open source software package called 3D PrinterMaker.
In this video, THUNKR is introduced to the audience and tells them about his own 3D printed prosthesis, a prosthetic hand.
3D Printers are one of the most important and lucrative industries in the world.
Today, they make everything from toys and watches to appliances and even the latest computer peripherals.
According to a 2015 report from the University of Michigan’s Economic Innovation Group, there are currently more than 2.3 million 3D printers in the US, making them the third largest market for printers in 2017.
In 2017, there were over 2,500 companies producing 3D products.
That’s up from around 1,500 in 2016, and the number of 3D-printing startups in the United States has nearly doubled to more than 7,000.
The companies selling the most 3D printable products are still relatively small, with fewer than 50 people working on a single product.
