Caption: 3D printer, thermographic time-lapse footage. Thermography records the temperature of surfaces by detecting long-wavelength infrared radiation. The colours show variations in temperature. The scale (right) runs from red (warmest), through orange, yellow, green and light blue to dark blue (coldest). A 3D printer is used to manufacture objects by building up layers of materials. The region where the material is being deposited is shown by the high temperatures generated (red) by the deposition mechanism. This printer is extruding a hot viscous polymer that cools and sets rapidly in air.
