3D printers use a wide range of materials, including plastics, plaster powder, photopolymers, nylon, metal and even food products to produce physical 3D models and prototypes. Yet there’s another important 3D printer material to consider – paper. This isn’t origami or papier-mâché. This is advanced SDL (Selective Deposition Lamination) additive manufacturing technology that uses paper to build physical 3D models layer by layer. Paper offers several distinct advantages over other materials used by 3D printers. In this white paper, you’ll learn the benefits of paper, used as the build material in SDL 3D printers, to produce 3D printed models.
