3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object. The most amazing thing about this technology is that 3D printers seem to have no limitations beyond the designer’s imagination.

From prosthetic limbs and tortoise shell to dragons and guitars, listed in this post are 30 absolute coolest things that people have created with 3D printers. Scroll on and enjoy peeps!
