As with any revolutionary hi-tech stuff, it’s both great stuff and scary. Nice piece you got here.
You didn’t include the cheaper, more common extruder type 3D printing.
Thank you for commenting! It is true that this is high-level information that provides only a very limited overview; but we do mention extruder-type 3D printing indirectly. Extruder-type printers use fused deposition modeling technology. Unfortunately we did not have room to include a better image to represent this type of 3D printing.
