Applications of 3d printers
Few years back no one was aware of two dimensional printing technologies and none of us even imagined about 3d printing techniques but today in the 21st century all of this is part of our lives and we are enjoying it. Today we have moved forward ahead from inkjet or laser printers, we are now converting our though in real object with help of 3d printers. These are part of our homes and offices today. We are using these printers for different purposes like for fun and for professional purposes In case you have not, I would recommend you to read what is 3D printing before reading applications of 3D priting.
Practical Applications of 3D Printers:
3d printers are now out which means we got the magic to shape objects which we want form materials like plaster, resin and cornstarch. Today this technology is part of many practical fields which are as follow.
Engineering: it is duty of engineers to create prototypes of whatever products or designs they are working on. Few years back it took more than month and extra manpower to create these prototypes but today with help of 3d printers just 3d graphics image has to be created. Rest of the work is done by printer and engineers save themselves from hassle of cutting and piecing together paper, wood and other materials to create the required prototype.
Architecture: like engineers, architects also need to create designs of building on paper and wood. With help of 3d printers they come up with these mockups in a short period of time and with a higher degree of accuracy. These 3D models also make it easier to visualize a design rather than just by looking at plansand drawings.
Advertisement and Marketing: to present convincing idea to clients, markers need to make real world animation of products. These ideas are not presented in much better way with help of 3D models of their products, as it give them edge and help them in boosting the sales.
Educations: these printers are best to use for educational purpose because learning need more visual images to generate efficient result. In subjects like chemistry, engineering, history, physics, general science 3D printing allows teachers to create more accurate visual aids for their lessons, and these visual aids can entice students to learn more about the subject matter.
Medicine: in different medical procedures it is important for surgeons to perform an experiment before going to the real experiment. As single error can result as loss of someone’s life therefore a 3d model can help them in attempting the real surgery.
Forensic pathology: if anyone likes criminal shoes and want to have gadgets like them to investigate a case them can use 3d printers.
Funny applications of 3d printers:
- Clone yourself: we always like to click pictures of our self, but what if we have a copy of those pictures in form of 3d objects with us. With help of 3d printer anyone can easily clone itself. Besides this you can also make a clone of any of your body part like brain or hands etc.
- 3d printed cloths: if you think that printing your body parts if crazy then you are wrong. Now with help of 3d printer users are printing fashionable clothes for themselves as well.
- 3d printed chocolate: 3d printed chocolates are among some innovative and exiting gifts for anyone. With help of 3d printers you can design your favorite shape of chocolate and then can eat it up as well.
- 3d printed lamp: 3D printed shell of the Momentum light produces an electrical current from kinetic energy. It is 3D printed with nylon polymer and is suspended by a spindle whereby it’s weight and form contribute to the angular momentum vector as it spins along its axis of rotation.
