3D Printing

There are many complex machines but the most complex one is the human brain that keeps innovating new technology. One of those innovations is something called 3D printing.

3D printing is basically a technological process of being able to print three dimensional objects from printers using an additive process (i.e. laying down successful layers of material to create an object).Β 

π‘―π’π’˜ 𝒅𝒐𝒆𝒔 π’Šπ’• π’˜π’π’“π’Œ?
3D printers use powders or melted solids to make the unique three dimensional shapes.
One can print almost anything like furniture, spare parts and various other objects depending on the size and geometry of the object.
You can even even turn your kids drawing into a 3D sculpture to make a cool souvenir.
As the world evolves, doctors are hopeful for 3D printers to print organs of the body which could save lives of many.
The precision in 3D printing to produce complex shapes surpasses what one can construct by hand.Β

There are specific types of 3D printers for specific functions. The two main ones include:
1️⃣ FDM printer (Fused Deposition Modelling):
Creates the object layer by layer with one material (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) and is mainly used for fabricating prototypes and end use functional parts in common engineering plastics. .
2️⃣ EBM printer (Electron Beam Melting):
Creates the object using metal powder or wires by placing them under a vacuum and fusing them together using the heat off an electron beam and is mainly used to print metal parts.

There are many more types of 3D printing processes having the same purpose as the two listed above, however they use different methods of printing.

π‘ͺ𝒐𝒐𝒍 𝑭𝒂𝒄𝒕𝒔:
3D bioprinting is a term to print an organ. The approximate cost to print a kidney would be around $300000.
3D printing started back all the way in the 1980’s and is said to have originated in France.
Fashion in 3D! You can actually wear items made by this technology like shoes, glasses and jewellery.
Certain foods like printed like vegan steaks and complicated chocolate designs.
Some say that we are going to need to print 3D houses in space someday!

𝑾𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒏𝒆𝒙𝒕?
4D printing! With time’ as the additional fourth dimension, 4D printing uses the same techniques of 3D printing to create a three-dimensional object with the ability to change shape over time.Β
