Five major applications of 3D printers in current and future 3D printing technology is developing very fast. These days it is being used in many technical areas. 3D printing technology is catching up to its full speed. Its important role is coming out in almost all the technical, industrial and scientific areas. Following is the major five applications of 3D printers in current and future time: Medicine Architecture Industrial Manufacturing Art Education
Medicine The use of 3D printing in medicine dates back to the mid-1990s. At present there are a lot of 3d printing applications in medical sectors: 3D printers makes different design, color, size, forms of prosthetics 3D printers plays an important role in preparing for actual operations 3D printers print medical equipment 3D printers are used in bio-printing 3D printed organs are very useful for doctors training
Architecture Use of 3D printers in architecture opens a new creative world. This technology improves the construction meth…

3D printer history timeline: From the 1980's to Today The 3D printers history started from 1980's. At which time 3D printing technology was called Rapid Prototyping(RP) technology. This technology is called rapid prototyping because it processes the prototype in a very fast and cost effective manner. The very first patent application for Rapid Prototype(RP) was filed by Dr Kodama but the full patent specification was subsequently not filed before the one year deadline after the application. However the first patent was issued for stereolithography apparatus(SLA) which was first invented by Charles (Chuck) Hull. This patent was issued in 1986. Later, Hull became the co-founder of 3D Systems Corporation.


 In 1987 Carl Deckard filed a patent in USA for the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) RP process. This patent was issued in 1989. SLS was later licensed to DTM Inc, which was later acquired by 3D Systems. In 1989 Scott Crump filed a patent for Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM). The…

What is 3D printer? How does 3D printer work? What is the use of 3D printer? 3D printer A 3D printer is a device which creates a three-dimensional object or a prototype of an object. 3D printer is a computer aided manufacturing(CAM) device. It creates the product from software created 3D  designs, diagrams, figures and patterns. It directly build the end product. It The process used by 3D printers is called additive manufacturing. It forms the object layer by layer until the model is complete.


3D printer working process3D printer uses digital data as an input and builds a three dimensional object as an output. 3D working process starts with making a virtual design of an object. This virtual design can be created by using 3D modeling program in a CAD(Computer Aided Design) file or with the use of a 3D scanner(which makes a 3D digital copy of the object). Then the 3D printer builds the object from bottom to top, layer by layer.
