Have a project in mind?Let’s get in touch!
Future parents, especially if they experience preparing for the birth of their first baby, want to collect different things related to this occasion. The technology of 3D printing offers a unique possibility – to print a real-size baby statue. Scientists use the results of medical ultrasound diagnostics to create realistic sculptures. The main aim of that idea was to give a possibility to people with vision defects the to “see” the results of ultrasound diagnostic.
The possibility of printing weapons had various comments among society. Some people are afraid that the availability of printed guns will negatively affect people’s lives. Even though the guns are made of plastic and may be used only once, people may use them to assault or wound someone. The problem with this kind of gun is that it is impossible to have proper control over that. If the weapon is used and causes an incident, it is almost impossible to check who initiated it.
Do you want to have a copy of the Venus de Milo for a lower price? Of course, a 3D printer cannot use marble, but the printing material will be very similar to the original one. Moreover, there are a lot of 3D scanners available on the market. So, the printing of pieces of art becomes an easy thing. All you need to do is scan an object, print it out and enjoy favorite art objects at your home.
Yes, you have read it correctly: you can print out food. The thing is that 3D printers can be filled with any pasty materials – stuffing, cheese, dough, puree, etc. So, the 3D printer may prepare a pizza or cake, and you will only need to bake it. Probably, scientists will present a 3D printer with a cooking option in the near future.
It doesn’t matter if you want to print a mini version of the enormous robot, an alien, or a figure of your favorite movie actor. 3D printing can create a copy of anyone and any size, that would satisfy the fans. Also, this technology may be applied in the souvenir business.
Several companies, including Inoxoft, have already designed software for printing vessels, tissues, and whole organs. The 3D printer designs it in the same way as natural ones, devices called “pearls” are able to apply live cells to damaged areas. If parts of the body cannot be renewed, then 3D printing can be used in the production of prostheses. Basically, any part of the body can be printed out and inserted into the body. An interesting fact is that printed prostheses cost around $50, while the same prostheses created using traditional technology may cost tens of thousands. The same 3D printing technology may be applied in the practice of dentists.
Considering the features of the 3D printers, they may print only plastic furniture, most probably – nice stuff for children. Surprisingly, 3D printers can create furniture of wood! The special material – Laywoo-D3, is created from recycled wood.
The videos of the printing the innovative buildings are very popular on the Internet. Even though there are doubts if those houses will be stable for all weather changes in different parts of the world, printing of the houses is now in the stage of development. Certainly, a real place needs additional furniture, not only the walls. If this technology is successful, it will bring the building process to a new level.
Unexpected, right? Of course, you cannot print electronic parts of it, but it’s only for now. Developers are working on additional features of the 3D printers, and soon everyone will be able to print another 3D printer on the 3D printer.
3D printing technology makes the first steps into the market. Some people test the features of the new technology, and some want to avoid accepting it and prefer the standard way of manufacturing. The only thing everyone will agree with is that this is another step into the future. Will it be successful or not – we will see in a couple of years.
