During the holiday season, many retailers do a sizable chunk of their sales revenue. The same is true for 3D printed figurine businesses. People are looking for gifts that they can give to their friends and loved ones. Although much of shopping is done online, people still like to browse stores to look for a unique gift for that special someone.

While it may be a seemingly complex process to wrap your head around, the 3D printing video below shows that, in practice, it’s actually pretty straightforward.
With technological advances, 3D printing is becoming increasingly affordable. One of the most common types of 3D printing is Stereolithography, also known as SLA 3D printing. Although the name sounds complicated, the process itself can be explained quite simply. Here is a 3D printing video made by Formlabs (an SLA 3D printer manufacturer) that helps explain:
