3D printing refers to any manufacturing process which additively builds or forms 3D parts in layers from CAD data. The technology is significant because it offers direct manufacturing, which means a design goes directly from user to physical product through a computer and a printer. 3D printing encompasses a wide range of additive manufacturing technologies. Each of these builds objects in successive layers that are typically about 0.1 mm thin. The methods used vary significantly, but all starts with computer aided design (CAD) model or a digital scan. This is then processed by slicing software that divides the object into thin cross sections that are printed out one on top of the other.
3D printing has largely been used by product designers and hobbyists and for a few select manufacturing applications. Moreover, the performance of additive manufacturing machinery is improving, the range of materials is expanding, and prices (for both printers and materials) are declining rapidly bringing 3D printing to a point where it could see rapid adoption by consumers and even for more manufacturing uses.
The industry is driven by recent technological developments which promise gains and flexibility, thereby enabling faster design, development and launch of products. 3D printing can also reduce the amount of material wasted in manufacturing and create objects that are difficult or impossible to produce with traditional techniques. Scientists have even bioprinted organs, using an inkjet printing technique to layer human stem cells along with supporting scaffolding

January. 2018 – Swiss engineers have created a fully functional tourbillon watch using 3D printing technology. All the gears, escapement, balance spring, main spring, and the case were 3D printed using a consumer level printer.
In 2016, North America led the 3D printing market in terms of market share, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. The US held the largest share of the North American 3D printing market, followed by Canada and Mexico. Aerospace and Defense are some major application areas where the 3D printings are used. Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the fastest growing market for 3D printing. This growth in 3D printing market is likely to take place due to the growing applications of additive manufacturing in healthcare, automobile and consumer industry.
