Not all of the worlds 3D printing systems are available locally so 3D Printers Australia will strive to bring all the best information from the world wide 3D Printing industry to the Australian industry right here at www.3d-printers.com.au.
3D Printers Australia believes that the use of the 3D printing technology is not only limited to the industries of Product Design and Development but that many industries will adopt the use of 3D Printers in Australia. Industries such a metal casting, jewelery and dental are taking up the new technologies of Wax 3D Printing right now.
Another extremely fun and fascinating area of the 3D Printing phenomenon is the emergence of a number of open source 3D Printing Systems.
