Do You Know What Areas 3D Printers Can Be Used in
3D printing technology can be used in many areas of life from small to large.
3D printing is usually achieved by using digital technology material printers. It is often used to make models in mold manufacturing, industrial design and other fields, and then gradually used in the direct manufacturing of some products. There are already parts printed using this technology.
The technology has applications in jewelry, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering, guns, and other fields.
In the construction industry, engineers and designers have accepted building models printed with 3D printers. This method is fast, low-cost, environmentally friendly, and beautifully made. It fully meets the requirements of the designer, while saving a lot of materials.
3D printing technology has been widely used in medicine, and there have also been many innovations, such as printing artificial meat, printing 3D blood vessels, printing human bones, and making biological models.
It’s not that your car was printed by a 3D printer (of course this may one day be possible), but that the automotive industry will replace some non-critical parts with 3D printed products when conducting safety tests and other work. Reduce costs while at the same time efficiency.
Traditional manufacturing also needs a lot of 3D printing products, because 3D printing is much better than traditional manufacturing in terms of cost, speed and accuracy. And 3D printing technology itself is very suitable for mass production, so the use of 3D technology in the manufacturing industry can bring many benefits, and even quality control is no longer a problem.
Researchers from Drexel University in the United States made 3D models suitable for research by 3D scanning the fossils and using 3D printing technology, which not only retained all the external features of the original fossils, but also reduced the scale, which is more suitable for research.
For example, in Microsoft's 3D model printing workshop. After the product is designed, the model is printed through a 3D printer, which enables the design and manufacturing department to better improve the product and create a better product.
Cultural Relics Protection
3D printing technology is of great significance in restoring and preserving historical culture. It can restore the authenticity of cultural relics, record the history of the destruction of these cultural relics, and effectively avoid the obliteration of human historical memory.
In the food industry, researchers are already experimenting with printing chocolate. Perhaps in the near future, many foods that look exactly the same will be printed by food 3D printers. By then, artificially made food may be many times more expensive.
This is the most expansive market. In the future, whether it is your personalized pen holder, the phone case with your bust embossed, or the unique ring in the world owned by you and your lover, it may all be printed by a 3D printer. You don't even have to wait until the future, you can do it now!
