We discuss these issues more thoroughly later in the book, when we show you how to build your own 3D printer. Recognizing Specialized Forms of Additive Manufacturing In addition to thermoplastic, printers can also extrude other materials in melted, gel, or semi-liquid states to fabricate a wide range of amazing objects from highly-detailed wax jewelry models for lost-wax casting (where dissolvable master objects are embedded in clay and hot metal is poured in, forcing out the wax or plastic and leaving the final object to cool and harden), to foods and candy.

Figure 2-14: MIT’s biomimetic (lifelike) SpiderBot 3D printer constructs large structures by raising and lowering itself from tethers. Measured lengths of filament can be affixed to one another to give a printed object a layer of one color and another layer of an entirely separate color. Other materials such as nylon can be dyed different colors, making each object completely unique and allowing for even more personalized variation among printed objects. More deliberate variations can include a serial number printed into each object’s design at the time of manufacture.
