When 3D printing was first introduced more than 30 years ago, one would not have thought that it would now be used in such a wide range of applications. In the many applications of 3D printing technology small selection of the most incredible seven applications, let's see together which applications it is.
3D printing car model
Back in 2013 Volkswagen Machinery published an article on 3D printed cars, that 3D printed cars can reach 100 miles per hour. And last year, the local car company officially tested the 3D printed car Stradi. In fact, the first road-ready 3D-printed car is officially ready for mass production next year and will be sold through the company.
3D printed houses
The size and scope of the 3D printing project is determined by the size of the 3D printer itself . The United Arab Emirates National Innovation Council recently announced plans to create the first 3D printed office building and complete 3D printed interior walls and furniture, and the proposed 2,000 square foot building will be built using a 20-foot tall 3D printer that engineers expect to print in a few weeks while reducing labor costs by 50 to 80 percent and construction waste by 30 to 60 percent.
3D printed drugs
3D printed drugs are not exactly new, but in fact, the U.S. FDA recently approved the first 3D printed drug. This approval, which could help as many as 3 million adults and children suffering from epilepsy, could also potentially open the door to creating more drugs that are easier to use, test, and produce. The Washington Post report says: In the future, instead of prescribing you a drug, your doctor will hand you an algorithm to print your own mixture of these chemicals at home, which is your personal 3D printed prescription.
3D printing Space Station tools and parts
When NASA sent the first 3D printer to the space station, they planned to use the 3D printer to make some parts on the space station to fix the station and the equipment on it. And by passing the 3D printing files to the cavernous station so they could build tools, the astronauts created 14 successful projects with no major failures, including the panels and the 3D printer itself.
If you lost your ear, you must have freaked out and thought you'd come to a Van Gogh moment, but now you probably don't need to worry. In the latest popular science article "5 Organs Science Can 3D Print for You" 3D printing "ears" is listed as the first item. With a 3D scan of your good ear, bioengineers can create a mold of the ear using CAD software, print it using biogel pieces, and then reattach the ear after incubating it in the lab.
3D printed food
Of course, printing tools and parts in outer space has NASA wondering if it can still give astronauts a pizza and try to build it up with a 3D printer. The materials normally used in 3D printers turned out to be such as dough, cheese and sauce for these foods.
Nano 3D printing materials
Giant 3D printers are used to build buildings, while by nano 3D printing materials are more widely used, it can be used in electronic manufacturing, currency manufacturing (mainly for security ), passports and art works.
