3D printing has been evolving by leaps and bounds and has reached a notable position where it is helping various businesses and professions. 3D printers have revolutionized the method and procedure of creating 3D models. Also known by the name of rapid prototyping, 3D printing is a mechanized method of designing 3D objects.
A few years ago, creating models for a particular project took hours when it required gluing and fixing miniatures. This tedious process has now been taken to a new level by 3D printing. Now any sort of designs pertaining to any profession can be created in a timely fashion.
How does 3D Printer work?
3D printer works almost similarly to a normal printer. The major difference however is that these printers use fine powder that settles down and becomes hard thereby building the entire 3D image layers by layers. The end product is a solid structure model which can be used for various purposes in accordance with the business. The technology doesn’t make the printing complicated rather, it makes it quick and easy.
Applications of 3D printing
Today 3D printing is practically used in almost every profession. Let’s see the main application areas:
• Architects and Engineers: Use it for making mock ups, product design models from blueprints.
• Artists: Use it for creating sculptures, figurines and miniatures
• Jewelry Designers: Taking their craft to the next level by making unique jewelry designs
• Medicine: 3D Printing is used in medical field to mock up a patient’s body parts for conducting a surgery, thereby helping in reducing the errors which take place in surgery
The evolution of 3D printing technology has made lives easier by taking a leap forward and has helped in saving time.
