3D Printer Applications

Remarkable applications of 3D printers

3D printers

3D printers have moved from theory to reality long ago and it has now become cheaper to produce 3D printers. There are a lot of models of 3D printers available in the market and each of them comes with slightly different specifications. Also, it will not be too long before a 3D printer joins a 2D printer in every home and their use becomes common. Let’s take a look at some useful applications of 3D printers.

 

3D printed Medical Models

Science has to have a dab in tech as these two go hand in hand with each other. With the advancement in 3D printers, doctors can now study human anatomy better than ever.  Surgeries will be taken to the next level as doctors inject reality into surgery practice with the help of 3D printed medical models. Complex surgeries will be easier to perform that would have otherwise taken hours with a great risk involved.

2D CT Scans have already become outdated as 3D printed models show each and every detail. UAE hospital has already started using 3D printed models to reassure their patients that it is safe to undergo surgery. It is because of the advancement in 3D printed models that cosmetic surgery has significantly advanced in the recent times so quickly. People who accidentally lose their body parts such as nose, ear, hand, fingers or even entire face can now get these features back using complex surgeries that have only been made possible because of 3D printing.

3D printed Graphene batteries

A research team is working on creating batteries printed with Graphene inks as it is more conductive than metal. It will be very useful for factories and manufacturers that are looking for long lasting batteries for different purposes.

Several teams of scientists are using the flexibility offered by a 3D printer to create complicated inner structures so that their capacity could be greatly increased. Using 3D printed models, they will be able to completely reshape the batteries so they could fit any device.

All this progress is not limited to batteries used in smartphones but goes beyond that. This is an energy-thirsty age that requires more energy to be saved and reproduced from a renewable source. These researches will prove to be extremely useful in producing energy-efficient products at low cost.

 

3D printers for military

Most of the machinery manufactured for military is complex and most of the parts are custom and rarely replaceable. With the advancement in 3D printing, we will be able produce replacement parts instantly in remote locations with the help of a 3D printer. Earlier this year, we have already seen a 3D printed gun that is considered a huge step towards further innovations.

3D printed Micro Drones are the next thing on the horizon as there are 3D design competitions being held all around the world to get people to use 3D printing and designs. The competitions are open to general public and anyone can take part in them and the winner will be announced by the number of downloads at the end of the competition. Designing such a drone is as easy as downloading a basic design template and use it with any software such as SketchUp as a start.

Household uses of a Desktop 3D printer

Now is the time to get a 3D printer if you don’t have any because there some extraordinary and fruitful things you could do with a 3D printer. No matter if you are designing something great yourself or downloading something from internet, there are just lots of things you can do.

From creating adapters to making repairs, a 3D printer bring solutions for different kinds of problems. So often it happens that a small plastic part on any appliance or product breaks and we deem it useless and throw it away. Well, this won’t be the case anymore if you have a 3D desktop printer at home and you could easily design almost all of the replacement parts yourself. This will save a lot of time, effort and money and enhance your creative skills.

It is often the case that something unique or hard to find breaks and becomes useless. However, instead of driving and wasting a better part of the day, you could design it yourself using your 3D printer. It might be the case that you are in need of a simple tool or product that is hard to find or has been discontinued, you can create it yourself. Depending on CAD software you are using or how familiar you are with it, you can go a long way with 3D printers.

3D printing gives you a lot of freedom and saves a lot of effort and money so it is absolutely necessary to have a 3D printer at home. It is only a matter of time before they become a common household item and will be seen in every house because of their diverse uses.
