FDM stands for Fused Deposition Modeling. It is a type of 3D printing process that can be understood as drawing with a specific “hot-glue” gun. It is also rebranded with an open source community like Fused Filament Fabrication, abbreviated FFF. It works by extruding a material to first point through a nozzle for crossing the section of an object, and then vertically move up, and keep repeating the process for all respective new layers.
CubePro 3D Printer is a product of 3D Systems company. This is a newer version of Cube X. Design similar to Cube 3, but two main differences are much larger size of the device and a closed working chamber. Cartridges are filament inside. It is heavily automated and has a very large canvas. CubePro is recommended for design offices or advanced projects at home.
A 3D scanner contributes to making 3D objects out of a 3D printer. It is a device that is designed for analyzing either an object or real-world environment for collecting data on how it is shaped and appears, like its color, designs and other things that contributes to its appearance. These data are collected and then used for constructing digital models that are three-dimensional.
A 3D printed gun involves using the 3D printer to make a gun out of thin air. This is making an object after it has been designed with a Computer Aided Design, which is abbreviated CAD. A 3D modeling will also contribute to having a digital file ready for the 3D printer to make the firearm.
A 3D printing process begins with the Computer Aided Design (CAD), which produces the 3D model, with a Computer Aided Design software. This process is followed by converting to STL.
