Check out the Industrial Applications of 3D Printing!

AEROSPACE & AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY

The Aerospace and Defence industry is a great example of the utilization of 3D printing with the ability to create parts that are stronger and lighter than parts made using traditional manufacturing. Unlike traditional manufacturing processes, such as CNC where the material is removed to create a part, 3D printing creates parts from the base up, layer-by-layer, allowing complex geometries and streamlined designs with fewer components. This all translates to reduced weight in the air. Air ducts, wall panels, seat frameworks, and even engine components have all benefited from reduced weight enabled by 3D printing.


MEDICAL INDUSTRY

Performing 3D printed preoperative planning can play a significant role in reducing surgical duration, anesthetic exposure, and the risks associated with the surgery. The life-size model planning could be used for teaching residents, student and young specialists. Additive manufacturing also plays a huge role in dentistry. It allows patients to get customized dental implants.

FOOD INDUSTRY

The use of 3D printing in the food industry encourages innovation and creativity .3D printing can help produce food with the exact quantity of vitamins, carbohydrates, and fatty acids as per the nutritional input. Using the same set of ingredients to produce a similar dish eventually drives the minimization of food waste.



FASHION INDUSTRY

From shoes and accessories to 3D printed dresses, the fashion industry has also been utilizing 3D printing to the fullest potential. 3D printing can also be used to create custom jewelry with complex geometric shapes. Small end-use accessories can be easily assembled in just minutes or hours using 3D printing.



ARCHITECTURE

3D printing helps architects to print small scale models of their design. It also gives clients a better idea of what the final building will look like and make the necessary changes immediately. Using 3D printing in construction reduces time and materials.
