  • Application areas of 3D printing technology

3D printing technology can be applied to any industry as long as these industries require models or prototypes. Industries that have a greater demand for 3D printing technology include aerospace, defense, healthcare, research and education, industry, and the food industry.

1) The medical industry in 2012 surgeons have successfully implanted 3D printed titanium alloy bones into the chin of a Belgian woman with oral cancer. This is just the beginning of 3D printing technology in the medical industry. Scientists are studying printing human heart valves and Human organs such as the kidneys.

2) Scientific Research American researchers have used 3D printing technology to make a 3D fossil model suitable for research, which not only retains all the external features of the original fossil, but also can be scaled down to make it more suitable for research. 3) The development of new industrial products in the industrial field often requires the production of models in advance, such as mobile phones, automobiles, aircraft and other products need to do a lot of models and parts before the launch. 3D printing technology can directly print products, which not only greatly reduces the time of pre-development, but also changes the production methods in the industrial field. 4) The Museum of Cultural Relics often uses alternatives to protect the original work from environmental or accidental events]. The Shaanxi History Museum recently printed the national treasure "Golden Monster" with a length of 11cm and a height of 11.5cm for 14 hours. The copies printed in 3D are almost identical to the originals. 5) Food industry food lovers have tried to print chocolate and cookies with a 3D printer. The dietitian considers the use of a 3D printer to print the daily foods based on the individual's basal metabolism and daily activity to control obesity, diabetes and other issues.
