Polylactic Acid. A thermoplastic formed using organic material.
The flat surface that the printer lays the material down onto. They are often heated to prevent warping of the printed object.

Material used to build your 3D prints
The black part that moves around on the X and Y axis, and holds the Hot End/Print Nozzle.
Printed around the bottom of a part to allow it to stick to the build plate. Unlike a raft, a brim is connected only to the edge of the object, not to the bottom
Computer Aided Design
The file format the CAD program and the printer both understand is a 3D object
Three‐dimensional objects are the solid shapes you see every day, like boxes, balls, coffee cups, and cans
