    How will 3D printing revolutionize manufacturing?

    3D printing service is just another technology for manufacture. It has strengths and weaknesses, so it really depends on what you want to use it for.

    If you have a low stressed part, that's an odd shape, that you don't need many of or don't need them quickly - 3D printing prototyping - fdm technology. This is why it's great for prototype work, where you're iterating different designs, trying things out. You can't tool up for this, it's too expensive. 3d printing is perfect.

    If you have a highly stressed part, with close tolerances, and you need 20,000 of them made a month - not 3d printing. Far too slow, far too inaccurate, and the material properties may not be what you need.

    Interestingly, one of the weakest areas of 3D printing is the design phase. 3D printing is very good at producing organic shapes, where material is only used at the areas of stress and removed where it isn't. Think of a coral reef - that sort of structure. Unfortunately, that kind of structure is (at the moment) rather hard to model in 3D in CAD software. CAD is structured towards the kind of shapes that traditional machining can deal with - straight lines, prismatic shapes and so on. The next big step for 3D printing will be the development of CAD systems that can really exploit the potential it has.
    thanks.

    It is moderate, yet sometimes appears to bode well. I simply read I don't review where - that an organization that fabricates stream motors began utilizing 3D printing to make molds for a portion of the part. Utilizing 3D printing for that spared them huge amounts of time and cash over customary strategies. Entirely cool, huh?
