waht is a use of 3d printing?


Software engineer at HCL technologies | Posted on

3D printing technology has been developed to give shape to anything that a human mind can imagine. All it takes is just the right material. 3D Printing or additive manufacturing, that needs digital files of the objects to create the lighter versions of them in reality by laying down layers after layers of a particular material, has already invaded the industrial space, and is soon to enter the domestic realm. The material that this technology uses is usually thermoplastic, which melts when heated and solidifies when cooled, but other materials like chocolate and glass are also being used by experts to make the applications of it wider.

Talking about some specific applications of 3D printing, there are many, such as follows:

1. The field of medicine has many applications of 3D printing. With the help of it, one can produce prosthetic limbs and other body parts. Even veterinary doctors have used 3D printing to make the masks for animals with facial injuries.

2. The technology is widely used in architecture also. One can make as big a house or building as they want in just a few days with the help of 3D printing. In Germany, even a house of glass was made by employing this technology.

3. Other applications of 3D printing include its uses in edible printing like cake decoration, manufacturing of certain products like automotives, prototypes of new products, bodies of cars and vehicles, etc.

4. Even musical instruments are being created with the help of 3D printing. Music concerts also use 3D printed bands.

3D printing is used to manufacture molds for making jewelry, and even the jewelry itself. 3D printing is becoming popular in the customizable gifts industry, with products such as personalized models of art and dolls, in many shapes: in metal or plastic, or as consumable art, such as 3D printed chocolate.
