The automotive industry was one of the first to embrace 3D printing technology. Here are a few of the many applications that have changed the industry forever.
The aerospace industry has very strict requirements when it comes to flight hardware. Because of this, 3D printing took quite a bit longer to make an impact on this industry. Now, there are several approved 3D printing materials so it has become a key component in aircraft manufacturing & repairs.
3D printed parts have made their way from Military bases all the way to the front lines. The results of this have led to a major shift in the way equipment repairs and new developments are being made.
This applies to everything from Kickstarter campaigns from inventors who make one product to companies who mass produce the components we all use and love.
Car racing teams heavily lean on 3D printing for testing and production components for their cars. Speed is everything so the faster a car can be upgraded or repaired, the better.
Advances in surface finish, print time & materials have allowed dental labs to start 3D printing components for an ever-growing number of applications.
Patient care has changed so much thanks to advances in 3D technology. Procedures are less invasive and faster and lives that would have been lost now have a much better chance at being saved.
3D technology has given tomorrow’s engineers the ability to design, validate & produce tangible items while they learn about the past, present & future of Engineering.
