Due to innovations emerging today, it’s unbelievable how technology keeps challenging and bettering itself. No one could’ve known that humankind would be unlocking the cutting-edge technology we’ve enjoyed in the last century.
One of the most revolutionary tech developments includes three-dimensional (3D) printing becoming more accessible and mainstream.
What Is 3D Printing and How Does It Work? In layman’s terms, 3D printing is the process of turning a digital file into a three-dimensional object using a 3D printer. Before the 3D printing process, product creation involves preparatory steps such as 3D modeling, and ‘slicing’ the model into identifiable layers. After these steps, the 3D printer loaded with 3D printer filament will take over. 3D printing promises to deliver any three-dimensional product, as long as its creator has built and sliced the model correctly. Thanks to this top-notch technology, 3D printing offers various uses and applications that are highly relevant today: 1. Medicine and Healthcare Since its emergence, additive manufacturing technology has had one of its first contributions to healthcare, medicine and surgery. 3D printing paved the way for medical professionals to hasten the design and production of medical implants, allow pharmaceutical companies to create specific drugs and medications and […]
