A three-dimensional printer produces objects by squeezing tiny layers of plastic on top of each other in an additive process. It is a way of taking a digital file and bringing it into the world as a physical object.

3D printing is an advanced technology that might not appear regularly in U.S. homes until 2040, according to an infographic designed by Neo Mammalian Studios. However, these printers are already being used on and around Syracuse University.

Anthony Rotolo, a social media professor at Syracuse University, and Isaac Budmen, an artist and 2012 SU graduate, combined their knowledge of technology to write “The Book on 3D Printing,” which was released at the end of August.
