why was the 3d printer invented

Why was the first 3D printer created?

3D printing was originally invented to create small-scale models (or ‘prototypes’) for testing before committing to an actual product. It was intended to be a rapid prototyping technique that could be beneficial in avoiding mistakes while manufacturing, which could prove to be budget and time-saving.

Why did Charles Hull invent the 3D printer?

In 1983, Hull was working for a small business that made tough coatings for tables using ultraviolet lamps. When he suggested a new way to use the UV technology – to quickly turn computer designs into working prototypes – Hull was given a little lab to play around in during his evenings and weekends.
