The day-to-day innovation of science and technology used to turn inconceivable futuristic into reality that makes human life more attractive as well as easier. The 3D printing technology is one of the innovations and it is much more intricate applications in science and technology. With the help of 3D printing technology; 3D solid objects of any geometrical shape can be made from a digital file. By laying down consecutive layers of a particular material the whole object is made. Each layer represents a lightly sliced flat cross-section that resembles with the output of a normal printer of the ultimate object (K. France, 2014).
Chuck Hall discovered stereolithography process where various layers are summed by curing photopolymers with UV lasers in 1984 that is the starting of 3D printing. (Mananes R., et.al., 2016). In 1990, the technology is improved as layer by layer where the depth of each layer is 0.1mm. This technology was used in medicine in 1999. The human body parts like ears and fingers were used this technology in 2000. 3D printing technology was familiar as open source from 2005. Using this technology, selective laser sintering (SLS) were variable from 2006. In 2008, first self-replication printer made where most of the components of this printer were able to print. In this period, 3D technology was capable to perform a very hard shapes as well as artists for designers. The Bio3D p
