Mechanical Engineering (FET) organized an expert talk on Wonder of 3-D Printing on 8th April 2019. The expert talk was delivered by Dr. Deepak Chhabra Assistant Professor, Mech Engg. Dept. from UIET, MDU. 3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object. 3D printing is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing which is cutting out / hollowing out a piece of metal or plastic with for instance a milling machine. It was truly an enlightening session for the mechanical engineering students.
