- They are actually printers that lay down ink, powder and glue, plastic, chemicals, or or cells layer by layer. 3D printers also use epoxies and lasers to harden epoxy and several other techniques.
3D printers are on the verge of being replicators. If you look through my profile you will see them being used for many different materials, clay, cement, sand, human cells, plastic, metal, electronic circuits, etc.
When these 3D printers started out 5 years ago they were printing #8 spaghetti strands, now the diameter is a small as ~.2 mm.
