3D Printing: Reimagining Manufacturing

For centuries, engineers and architects have toiled to pitch their design ideas using 2D drawings. However, among the many novel innovations of the 20th century, we now have a viable and efficient way of bringing ideas to life through 3D printing which was first used in 1981 for prototyping. It is the process of manufacturing 3 dimensional solid objects from digital files by laying down successive layers of material. Today, digital design is deployed to create accurate drawings quickly and manufacture objects with greater precision in photorealistic styles. It has enabled the use of realistic scale models and thereby, the production of complex (functional) shapes using less material than traditional manufacturing methods. How does 3D printing/ additive manufacturing work? A model is designed digitally using a software which is analogous to a mould. This model is then used to manufacture an item by transmitting the data to a 3D […]
