  • What are the characteristics of 3D printers?

3D printing has brought about a worldwide manufacturing revolution. It used to be that the design of components depends entirely on whether or not the production process can be realized. The advent of 3D printers will overturn this production idea, which will allow enterprises to no longer consider production when producing components. Process problems, any complex shape design can be achieved through a 3D printer.

3D printing can generate objects of any shape directly from computer graphics without the need for machining or molds, thereby greatly shortening the production cycle of the product and increasing productivity. Although still to be improved, the market of 3D printing technology has great potential, and it is bound to become one of the breakthrough technologies for the future manufacturing industry.

3D printing allows people to purchase such printers in some electronic product stores, and the factory is also selling them directly. Scientists said that the use of three-dimensional printers is still limited, but one day in the future people will be able to print more useful items through 3D printers.

3D printing technology is crucial to NASA’s space exploration mission. More than 30% of the existing spare parts of the International Space Station can be manufactured by this 3D printer. This device will use polymers and other materials to make articles layer by layer using extrusion incremental manufacturing technology. The 3D printing experiment is one of the NASA's key research projects in the future. 3D printed parts and tools will enhance the reliability and safety of space missions. At the same time, space mission costs can be reduced by not having to transport it from the earth.
