3D printing, also known as AM, uses computer-aided designs to create an object. It is a process of making 3D objects using plastic, metal, and composite materials, usually layer upon layer, to build physical models, prototypes, patterns, tooling components, and production parts.
A 3D printer creates 3D objects of any shape without any molding, assembly, or use of machines. It helps in making high-end goods at a reduced cost. In the Automotive and Aerospace sectors, the use of 3D printing enables manufacturers to make complex parts with high efficiency. Fashion designers also use AM to produce complex jewelry and clothing designs with the use of nylon. In addition, researchers are finding ways to use this technology and make prosthetic parts using biological materials such as cartilage, bone, and skin. 3D printing is an evolving technology that serves various sectors such as Automotive, Healthcare, and Aerospace, and is expected to also find new applications in other sectors.
