    Smile 3D printing – What You Can Create Now, And In The Future

    All Things Plastic

    If you can draw it, you can 3D print it. Everything from a tripod adapter for your camera to comic book action figures.Whether it’s functional or fun, plastic (Nylon/Polyamides) is a wonderful medium that has a multitude of uses.


    From Cabinet Knobs To Car Parts

    With the recent technological advancement, laser deposition technology in the world of 3D printing has made it possible to print droplets as tiny as 0.005 inches. This opens more creative avenues for jewellery and sculptures since it’s possible to create high-definition metal objects. Additionally, printed metal objects can take on a much more utilitarian aspect and include such items as machine parts and highly customised tools.


    Furniture

    The process called additive manufacturing makes it possible to put together small uniform pieces. There is no liquid or ‘ink’ as such but minute wood pieces can be combined while printing household stuff like bookends, bowls and furniture. This process allows to experiment with different materials and creates hybrid materials with remarkable new properties.


    Body Parts

    Dentists are already printing 3D Xrays of the dentures to help them better with the patient’s treatment. The process is called 3D bioprinting. Researchers are working towards the possibility of manufacturing kidneys, livers and artificial hearts. The scope of bioprinting is immense and will help in transplants where donors are less than those who require it.

    The 3D printing technology is currently used to deliver products in various kinds of plastics such as PLA and ABS etc. However, some of the major industries are using this technique to create metallic 3D printed objects such as aircraft and automobile parts etc.
    Besides, you could expect to see ceramics, glass, rubber, paper, wooden and similar other 3D printed products being used. Scientists have also developed 3D printed body parts for humans and 3D printed prosthetics to assist the medical industries.
