1. Rapid manufacturing and prototyping:
3D printing makes it easy and relatively inexpensive production of very small parts in bulk. Also, we can use larger machine
that uses powdered material for the rapid production of commercials goods.
Now a days 3D printers are used for tissue fabrication using hydrogel bio-links. It proved to be the best method of implanting stem cells which are capable of generating new tissues and organs in living humans.
3. Medical Devices:
3D printers are very helpful in creating prosthetic limbs which are not only cost effective as well as more functioning as compared to the previous one.
4. Industrial art and jewellery:
3D printing is becoming popular day by day in the customisable gifts industry for manufacturing personalized models of arts and models of different material like metals, plastic, etc.
5. Automotive industry:
3D printing is widely used in printing spare parts of various automobiles like cars, motorcycles, planes, etc. It’s not only cost effective also time-saving.
The use of 3D printing to produce scale models within architecture and construction have steadily increased in popularity as the cost of 3D printers has reduced. This has enabled a faster turn around of such scale models and allowed a steady increase in the speed of production and the complexity of the objects being produced.
7. Robotics, soft sensors and actuators:
3D printers are widely used in robotics and soft actuators which are not available in ready made in market like robotics arm, gripers and many more.
3D printers are used in space from making dust buildings to mini satellite. It allows astronaut to print their objects in space rather than relying on supply from earth.
