Full Answer

3D Doritos were like regular Dorito chips, but instead of being just triangular in shape, they were puffed up and took on a rounded shape with 3 corners. The inside of the 3D Doritos was hollow, filled with nothing but air. This meant that less 3D Doritos fit into a bag compared to a regular bag of Doritos chips. A commercial for 3D Doritos that featured Ali Landry and Sean Hayes from the show “Will and Grace” was shown during a Super Bowl.

    How does 3D printing work?

    A:

    3D printing is done by using specialized materials which are layered to create a three-dimensional product. These materials are fused to other materials as they are deposited, often by the use of heated nozzles or lasers. Printers use data created in 3D-modelling software, such as AutoCAD, and slice it into hundreds or thousands of horizontal pieces to determine where layers of material go.
