3D Printing Is Taking Hold For Business Industry

The process of 3D printing is quickly altering the way entrepreneurs think about their production cycles. Historically, 3D printing has been used to speed up the process of creating prototypes, but as the technology has evolved, 3D printing has made its way into large industries like the aerospace and biomedical fields. And it's creating some groundbreaking results.

While 3D printers still have a long way to go before they are perfected, their increased adoption by companies big and small has signaled a change in thinking for businesses, during both the design and production phases. To find out more about how 3D printing technology is affecting business today and where it's going in the future, Business News Daily spoke to engineers and entrepreneurs about the possibilities afforded by 3D printers.

3D printing

First of all, what is 3D printing? It's the process by which three-dimensional digital models are made into physical objects using a 3D printer. Working in tandem with computer software, the 3D printer reads a digital .STS file on a computer and then uses a filament or a resin to render the digital representation in tangible material, layer by layer.

3D printers employ a variety of materials, including plastics and polymers, steel, titanium, gold, and ceramic. This versatility means 3D printed models can be used for everything from artistic sculptures to airplane components. Some 3D printers can even print proteins and chemicals, enabling the devices to create foods and medicines.

Applications for 3D printers
Prototyping

One of the oldest uses for 3D printers is the quick and efficient creation of prototypes. Since the printers were invented in 1983, companies have employed 3D printing in order to get a workable model of their desired end product, either to test the concept or present it to future investors. 3d printing service in chennai,bengaluru,kolkata,lucknow,kanpur,karnataka india

"Before we called it 3D printing, it was called rapid prototyping," Greg Paulsen, director of project engineering for third-party manufacturer Xometry, said. "It used to be seen as a way to get close enough to a functional model."

Low-volume manufacturing

Though 3D printers can be slow-moving, they're adept at fulfilling low-volume production needs. Much like with prototyping, if an entrepreneur is ready to launch a new product and isn't certain of the demand, he or she can print up a small amount to test the waters. Low-volume production is also common when it comes to medical devices, for example, as manufacturers create, test and redesign their products for optimization.

Mechanical parts

Another beneficial use for 3D printers in is the creation of mechanical parts, either for sale in large industries or for personal repairs. Many products of 3D printing aren't sold directly to consumers, but are created by companies (or third-party contractors) as components in a larger project. One example is GE Aviation's 3D printed fuel nozzle, which will be added to the company's CFM LEAP airplane engines.

biomedical 3d printing

One particularly exciting aspect of 3D printing is the ability to print biomedical devices tailored specifically to individuals. For example, some companies are developing 3D printed, custom prosthetics for amputees; these prosthetics are designed to be far more comfortable for the user.

Design

When engineers design a product, they must keep in mind the limitations of the production process. 3D printers are capable of creating parts that would previously not be achievable using traditional manufacturing techniques. This opens up an entirely new world in the design phase, which can lead to better, more efficient 3d printed products and component parts.
