Porta-King recently completed an environmental enclosure for a company in California to house their new 3D printer. In order for the printer to work at optimal levels, an enclosure that provided excellent environmental control was needed.

Simply put, a 3D printer acts much like a normal printer, but instead of printing on paper with ink, you are printing a 3D object with wax, plastic, or metal. Also called “additive manufacturing,” an object is first created in a digital design program before being sent to the printer to be built layer by layer.
This easy process helps businesses save thousands of dollars when producing prototypes or components. 3D printing could also be the future of modular construction by creating the components needed faster and cheaply.
3D printers are becoming more popular thanks to their ability to easily produce a wide range of components for:
