Senior Design Project 3D PRINTER

If we all try to imagine a world where the production of a given solid object would be in your home rather than some factory in china or USA which contribute heavily in global warming. Imagine a world where we can have tangible goods as well as intangible services delivered to our PC over the Internet. A future in which the everyday "atomization" of virtual objects into hard reality has turned the mass pre-production and stock -holding of a wide range of goods and spare parts into no more than an historical legacy. This sounds like a far-fetched theory to some, almost sounds like too good to be true but 3D printers can turn it into a reality. 3D printers are capable of outputting physical solid objects. This has been in practice for a two decades. For the rapid development of technology, the usage & utilization of 3D Printer in industries have increased greatly. 3D Printer has brought a revolutionary change in the field of production engineering. 3D printing is a processes in which materials are joined or solidified layer by layer under computer control to create a three-dimensional Object. 3D Printer is a highly accurate machine. 3D printer is used in both rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing. In this project, we will be building a low cost 3D printer using FDM model from the ground up to show everyone what it is capable of in producing quality objects. For better quality and accuracy, we will be implementing few algorithms and tricks on the 3D printer. So the idea is to show people, the true potential of a 3D printer using low cost products then everyone can understand and appreciate the advancement 3D printer can make in all fields in modern world. The use of 3D printer will only increase as we move to the future and it will gain more popularity and will become a household item in the coming days.
