Three dimensional printing has been around since the early 1980’s. In the beginning, this type of technology was exclusive to scientists and engineers but its recent success has catapulted this to many business sectors and into the public eye. With the costs dropping, it is now allowing users from fashion, design, medical and dental industries to all benefit from the limitless possibilities that this technology offers.
With projects being able to be carried out at a rapid rate and with high quality results being achieved, this has allowed 3D printing to step out and let its full potential be seen. Using the additive process means that companies are cutting their waste to nearly nothing. This means companies are now saving thousands of dollars which can be put into other areas of the company.
3D printing technology has been a revolution since it has been implemented into the manufacturer’s product creation process. With printers at affordable prices, it is far easier for hobbyists and creators to purchase 3D printers and have them in their own homes. This allows consumers to print and create objects of their desire whenever they want. Designers and innovators are starting to emerge and their products and creations are not only making the market but selling on it.
Our lives and the world around us, has been influenced by this technology for the better. As this technology is embraced, the 3D printer continues to show its strength and endless possibilities. With many printers being straightforward to use, it is also encouraging to people who would have thought that the operating techniques and system would have been far too technical for them to understand.
3d printing technology has exploded onto the scene and it looks set to stay that way and be a big part on how our future and the future of the manufacturing is going to be shapped.
