3D printers are able to produce parts more accurately and at a faster rate than ever before. A plastic acoustic guitar, 3D printed medical models, lightweight parts for aircrafts and cellphone cases are just some of the things this technology has helped create. The options of what can be created are constantly being challenged by companies and education providers. Universities such as Deakin University and the University of South Australia are taking up the chance to be a part of this ever-growing industry. Deakin University, for example, has a 3D printing lab in which students can use the latest in polyjet and fused deposition modelling technologies. And it’s not just plastic models that are being transformed from a picture on a computer screen to a tangible object. Swinburne University is working on the development of 3D printing concrete, and companies such as Air Liquide are working on improving the […]
