3D printing is a process of creating a physical object from a digital model by laying down successive layers of material. The object is built up layer by layer, with each layer being a cross-section of the final product. This technology allows for the creation of complex, highly detailed objects that would be difficult or impossible to produce through traditional manufacturing methods.
By using a Raspberry Pi single-board computer in conjunction with OctoPrint software, users can remotely control and monitor their 3D printer from anywhere with an internet connection. This allows for greater flexibility and convenience when printing, as well as increased efficiency and accuracy in the printing process.
