The current decade has brought many interesting tools into the world of computer technology, with the most astonishing tool being the 3D printer. There are many designs on the market for either the private individual or for large companies. They seem to work in almost any industry – from car parts to medical research. Because of the many things that can be done with this new technology, the market is currently overflowing with various models and prices for these new printers.
The 3D printer can currently be found in many industries including:
- Medical research
3D printers are a computer-aided device that can develop objects in 3-dimensions. The 3D printers receive digital data from a computer and rather than printing the output on paper, these printers can develop a model in 3 dimensions of a custom material.
Parts for different purposes
With the correct materials, 3D printers can print out auto parts for a car or a replacement for a decayed tooth.
In entertainment, models of the latest zombie or the planets in our solar system can be printed out and use in the next blockbuster movie released from Hollywood.
In medical research, uses are being developed to replace damaged organs. Soon, instead of waiting for a liver to be donated to replace a damaged one, a liver can be 3D produced with a printer; all the specifications for the liver being made for just the individual that needs it. To many, this is the most exciting research that is currently being done with 3D printers.
Before rushing out to get a 3D printer, you need to do some research and read reviews of the different brands and models. All this information can be found on the internet.
