The technology of 3D printing is unarguably unique. It possesses the power to change and improve the services and products that are available for us today. We have read in previous blogs, how 3D printing has made medical history when it was used by surgeons in the rebuilding of a crash trauma victims face. The surgeons reconstructed the patient’s face with printed parts at every stage.
This pioneering surgery has opened the door for additive manufacturing (3D printing) to be more widely used in medical health. The end goal of 3D printing implementation is for the improvement of medical services currently available for patients, and to improve medical services throughout the world. We are looking at a technology that has the power to influence and change the current medical dilemmas that our health experts are faced and challenged with every day.
Three-dimensional printing is not a new technology and has been around for some thirty years and more. The use of 3D printing has effectively radicalized the medical manufacturing world, and is now aides medical equipment advancement.
Anyone using a 3D printer can easily create what he or she wants if they have the right products and equipment. In fact, many users have already created toys, jewelry, shoes, clothing, car parts, and firearms.
The beauty of 3D printing is it gives the user what they need on demand. Manufacturers no longer need warehouses filled with stock, but could be looking at designing an upload feature via their website. Maybe one day it will change to where designs and/or specific parts can be uploaded, and then created to the consumers’ needs and demands.
The technology of 3D printing holds so many positive attributes that’s it’s no surprise at all that it is making serious ground through the world’s main industries, which include automobile, aerospace, healthcare, and manufacturing.
