There are two kinds of 3D printers (for now):
- 3D Printers using plastic filament
- 3D printers that print plastic liquid, then cure with UV light. (Like what your dentist uses…)
- A coming (but not here for the home market at an affordable price point yet) technology is fused-deposition metal printing.
