Several uses for 3 d printing equipment

  1. 1. Several Uses For 3D Printing Equipment
  2. 2. The manufacturing and engineering industries have used 3D printing processes for many years. However, it did not improve its market share due to the fact the process was very slow. In addition, the costs of buying, leasing and using 3D printers was usually prohibitive. Costs have come down in recent years and the improved technology used in 3D printer equipment has resulted in increased demand.
  3. 3. Companies can spend anything from a few thousand dollars to millions of dollars on research and development of new products each year. It can take months or often several years to come up with a working model of a new product. The design and prototype stage can be completed much quicker with computer design software linked to a 3D printer.
  4. 4. There has been a noticeable increase in the use of 3D by the fashion and fabric industries in recent years. Stores and retail outlets provide a service to customers in which they can choose to have items of clothing and other goods personalized. Many items can be customized using the buyers name, slogan or sometimes a photograph printed onto the garment or other personalized item.
  5. 5.  The medical sector relies heavily on the use of 3D imaging and printer equipment to produce x-rays and scans. Whereas x- rays produce a picture of a specific area of the body, a scan can produce a much more detailed 3D image. Scan can usually provide the physician with a much clearer and detailed view of the problem area.
  6. 6. Architects use computer aided design and 3D equipment to design and produce scaled models of their buildings. The model replicates in miniature the building design structure. Changes to the design can be made quickly on the computer and a new model produced.
  7. 7.  Crime scenes can easily be reconstructed using a 3D program and printer equipment. This allows the relevant professionals to examine several different scenarios in order to determine what actually happened. It is often used when there is a need for facial reconstruction in order to identify and individual.
  8. 8. The equipment used for 3D prints may still be out-with the budget level of most individuals. Developments in technology and an ever growing demand will eventually result in a drop in the prices.
  9. 9. When that happens they will become a more cost effective option for the majority of home users. Click here for more information on Stratasys fortus and click here for more information : http://www.mcad.com/
