Commercial 3D Printer

Dimension Elite 3D printer is a prototyping machine that works using a technology called FDM (fused deposition modeling). Basically, It creates an objects by constantly adding layers of ABS plastic on top of each other as opposed to the traditional subtractive manufacturing processes that remove material to create the object.
