Which industry will benefit most from 3D printing?

Postby 3dtech » Fri Aug 25, 2017 11:28 pm

Technology has never ceased to amuse us. In this era of technological brilliance 3D printing is making its impact felt more than ways we could have imagined.3D printing is an additive manufacturing technology where three dimensional solid objects are created by laying down successive layers of material.

The application of 3D printing is prevalent in the medical sector widely. Personalized prothetics, hearing aids, patient specific dentures are manufactured directly using 3D printing. 3D printed surgical guides are assisting surgeons to perform precise operations. Bio-printing technology is being used for imaging skin, tissue, bones and even human organs. 3d printing in delhi ncr gurgaon mumbai pune chennai india

Manufacturing
Manufacturing has been significantly affected by 3D printing in a number of ways, but none so much as prototyping. GE is a prime example of a company harnessing 3D prototyping to change its business. By printing components for prototypes, companies are able to deliver faster, more accurate results for a fraction of the cost with older methods. rapid prototyping services

Health - 3d printing medical-healthcare companies
If there’s one sector where additive manufacturing has really stood out, it’s in the world of medicine. The Internet is rife with news about how 3D printers have changed the process of creating prosthetics, and even enabled patients themselves to have a hand in designing and creating their prosthetic limbs. Of course, that’s only one example. 3D printers have been used to create everything from sleep apnea treatment devices to organs and body parts. Even artificial implants are being printed these days. 3d printing medical organs

Aerospace: 3D printing is allowing for richer mechanisms to be built more simply without the need for welding that can be significantly lighter than existing approaches.

Automotive: Similar to aerospace but the scale is different. Imagine if there is no long production lines but
simply frames etc that come out the other end.

Fashion - 3d printed fashion collection
The fashion world hasn’t been exempted from the 3D printing revolution. In fact, it’s embraced it. Bold designers and fashion moguls have printed everything from purses to shoes. One company (Nervous System) even created the world’s first flowing 3D printed dress. 3D printed clothing to become a viable choice in the marketplace from big name designers and mass-market companies alike.

Construction/Homebuilding
Do 3D printed homes sound like science fiction? Rest assured that they will be a reality, and in a much shorter time than you might imagine. One nonprofit is currently considering using this technology on a large scale to provide better housing for residents living in Brazil’s overcrowded cities. It’s being used to create temporary shelters and housing for refugees as well. 3d printing in architecture industry

Jewelry
This one is perhaps a no-brainer. 3D printing technology seems ideal for use in jewelry manufacture, particularly fashion jewelry. However, plastic isn’t the only material available. Gold and silver filament is already on the market, allowing jewelers and designers to bring their artistic creations to life in precious metals. As 3D printers become more advanced, look for even more printed jewelry on the market, not just from smaller companies, but from some of the big name designers in the industry. It will be especially important in the creation of limited-release items and custom creations. 3d printed jewelry

Toys and Collectibles
This is another industry that should be pretty obvious. However, there might be some surprises here. This new technology primarily deals with plastics, and that’s the material most toys are made from. Several companies are already creating toys for up to 10 times lower costs than what they previously enjoyed. 3d printed toys & games

Architecture and Design - 3d printing architectural models india
It’s difficult to imagine an industry that could benefit more from additive manufacturing than architecture and design. This technology enables architects to take their blueprints and designs and transform them into true three-dimensional objects, not just computer simulations of those objects.
