3D printing, a type of rapid prototyping technology, is a technology that constructs objects by layer-by-layer printing based on digital model files, using bondable materials such as powdered metal or plastic. 3D printing is usually achieved using digital technology material printers. The following will introduce to you what 3D printing technology can be used for.
What can 3d printing technology be used for?
3D printer is a convenient and super easy-to-use 3D printer that can help you transform your imaginary models into reality.
1. Used in the handicraft industry
1) Improve original design: Quickly obtain design elements through three-dimensional digital means, integrate elements into original product design, and save 60% of development time;
2) Improve the speed of sculpture and reduce the cost: 3D digitization can enlarge and shrink the product and then 3D print it to achieve rapid replication of different sizes;
3.)Improve the quality of sculpture: Through computer CG technology, product design and sculpture can be completed more efficiently, and sculpture products are designed through computer CG, and the sample pass rate of products in Japan and Disney is over 90%;
2.The shoe industry
The mold matching rate between the sole and the upper developed by 3D technology can reach almost 100%. 3D printing is a special material accumulation process. The utilization rate of raw materials is 100%. It only needs a simple operation of the computer, and no other manual assistance is required in the production process. It also shows obvious advantages in saving labor costs;
3. Automobile industry
In the future, 3D printing technology will play an extremely important role in various industries such as automobiles. Whether it is in the design of model printing or in the printing of auto parts, 3D printing will play a huge role;
4. Sand table model industry
The 3D printing sand table model has the incomparable advantages of traditional manufacturing processes. It can not only quickly and accurately produce a reduced-scale three-dimensional solid model, but also meet the needs of individualization and customization, making sand table production go to a wider space. The 3D printing sand table model is based on the digital manufacturing process. 3D printing combines accurate virtual 3D models with real physical objects, which greatly reduces the threshold and time period of sand table manufacturing;
5. Aviation Industry
As a typical representative technology in the manufacturing field of the third industrial revolution, the development of 3D printing has always attracted widespread attention from all walks of life;
With the help of 3D printing technology and other information technology, the aviation industry can develop a new fighter jet in at least three years. Coupled with the technology's high flexibility, high performance and flexible manufacturing characteristics, and the free and rapid prototyping of complex parts, metal 3D printing will shine in the aerospace field, providing strong technical support for the manufacture of defense equipment;
