The Latest Application of 3D Printing Technology

3D printer is a new word that has appeared in the civilian market in recent years. There is another name in the professional field called “rapid prototyping technology”. Rapid prototyping technology was born in the late 1980s and is a brand-new manufacturing technology based on the material stacking method. In recent years, with the continuous development of 3D printing technology, its application field is also expanding. 3D printing technology is more and more to help humans explore the unknown mysteries; the following is an example of the application of 3D printing technology. 

1 Medical industry

An 83-year-old man suffered from a chronic bone infection, so he replaced the mandible “printed” by a 3D printer. This is the world’s first case of using 3D printed products as human bones.

2 Architectural design

In the construction industry, engineers and designers have accepted architectural models printed with 3D printers. This method is fast, low cost, and environmentally friendly. At the same time, it is beautifully produced, which fully meets the requirements of the designer, while saving a lot of materials.

3 Manufacturing

Manufacturing also needs many 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 large-scale production, so the use of 3D technology in manufacturing can bring Many benefits, even quality control is no longer a problem.

4 Food industry

Yes, it is “printing” food. Researchers have begun to try to print chocolate. Perhaps in the near future, many foods that look exactly the same will be “printed” using a food 3D printer. Of course, it may be artificially produced by then. Food will be many times more expensive.

5 3D printing photo studio 

It only takes 10 minutes of 3D scanning and waits for a few hours to get a physical portrait. You can also use 3D printing photography technology to print doll souvenirs.

The above is the latest application field of 3D printing technology. Due to the limitations of printing materials, products mostly stay at the level of model making. That is to say, the current advantage of 3D printing technology is mainly to shorten the design phase time, so that the designer’s model is realized More convenient.
