Ways Different Industries are Using 3D Printing

Postby 3dtech » Mon Dec 25, 2017 10:43 pm

3D printing is a rapidly advancing technology that is having a major impact on a variety of industries. Manufactures are using 3D printing to reduce the costs and waste material associated with prototyping, as well as to speed up the process. Medical and health-related companies are 3D printing organ tissue and prosthetic arms. Even the 3d printing in fashion industry has been experimenting with 3D printed design clothing.

3D printed prosthetics

The medical industry abounds with amazing stories of innovation involving 3D printers. “This technology is limitless,” said Dr. David Hirsch. “The only thing that's limited is our ability to think about new applications for it".

For example, Sydney Kendall lost her arm when she was 6 years old in a boating accident. She’s now 13-years old, and through 3D printing, she has a functional robotic arm. Traditionally, prosthetic limbs can cost anywhere from $50,000 to $70,000. With 3D printers, Sydney was able to have prosthetic arm printed for $200. She can now grab a cup of coffee and catch a baseball. 3d printing services in Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand , Uttar Pradesh and Haryana,chandigarth,kochi,bhopal,visakhapatnam india

These types of stories are becoming more common with the rising use of 3D printers. Scientists are even 3D printing human biological materials such as blood vessels and organs. They are also studying cancer with 3D printed cells.

3D printing in dentistry

The dental industry is benefiting from 3D printing technology as well. A common problem dentists have had was the subpar quality and slow turnaround time from outsourcing dental work such as crowns and bridges. This often resulted in the dentists having to reorder the product and patients having to wait longer than expected for their treatment and procedures.

The use of 3D printers in dental offices is decreasing the need for this type of outsourcing. Orthodontists and dentists can now develop their own bridges, crowns, and other items for their patients in-house. The reduces their cost, speeds up turnaround time, and gives the dentist more time to focus on patients.

3d printing in architecture industry


Architects have a knack for designing ambitious and complex yet artistic structures which is comprehended by others with a miniature model. Creating complex miniature models fits right inside the 3D Printing forte.

Electronics

Creating customized casings for circuit boards and other equipments. With the advent of IoT, Raspberry Pi and Arduino, there has been a high demand for printing casings for these boards.

Product designers in the consumer electronics space are elated to use the technology for helping them create better designs. Apart from this major usecase, the electronics industry is highly experimenting to 3D Print electronic circuit boards itself using multiple extruders and conductive inks.
