Additive manufacturing, or 3D-priting, as it is today more commonly called, has received recently a lot of interest in public media. Partly this is due to reasonably priced 3D-printers which have been launched to be used at homes. These printers, which are able to produce plastic parts, have brought 3D-manufacturing available for everyone. In addition to simple plastic objects there are many industrial applications where additive manufacturing is utilized or studied, varying from metallic parts used in aeroplanes to 3D-printed food.
