What are applications in healthcare industry of 3d printing?

Potentially we can 3D print and repair cartilage using 3D printing, print skin, print bone, print tissue and perhaps in a while fully functional organs. Most of the media news about "3D printed nose" or whatever are baseless or too optimistic by half. People are working on these things but they are ...

What materials are used in the 3d printing process?

First 3D Printing is an additive manufacturing process, where material is added upon by each successive layers in various forms namely solid plastics called asFDM Process. Also you can add resin and powder by stereolithography processes such as SLA & SLS . https://www.allthat3d.com/wp-content/upload...

What is the best path to take to become a 3D printing expert?

The best way to start is to use an easy 3D modeling tool such as 123d, TinkerCAD or 3Dtin to start making things. You will encounter a lot of issues and practical problems while doing this and start to iterate. Communities such as Shapeways and i.materialise also provide great platforms for learning...

What are some common forms of rapid prototyping?

The most common forms of rapid prototyping are: 1. Laser stereolithography (SLA) 3d printing - when the object is grown in the fluidal photopolymer. The object gets dense under the influence of the ultraviolet laser. http://www.padtinc.com/images/rapid-prototyping-propeller-fdm.jpg 2. SLS or Selecti...

What is the difference between 3D, 4D and 5D Printing?

3D printing is a name for a group of technologies that layer by layer build up and manufacture objects. The correct name for these technologies is actually Additive Manufacturing. 3D printing is actually the name for one single Additive Manufacturing technology. The 3D printing process works with a ...

What are the best methods for rapidly prototyping products as a startup?

Use the tools you are best at to create something visual. Without a picture, communicating your vision will be next to impossible... and it's absolutely essential that you share that vision with those you hope to fund your idea, build your idea, protect your idea, etc. 3d printing prototyping servic...

How are the 3D printer and its related businesses in India?

3D Printing technology has been accepted all over the world for its various advantages, thus making India to focus on this technology. 3D printing is in its nascent stage in India (now its catching up), as the awareness in missing. Many people in India still don't know about this technology, and the...

How would one go about 3D printing investment casting ?

Getting more into the nuts and bolts of your question, it would be easy enough to 3D print object model to lay a mold around- however, most materials printed by commercial 3D printers will not simply melt out. https://sc02.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1sRclQFXXXXXiXpXXq6xXFXXXy/UV-photosensitive-3d-printer-sla-...

Is 3D printing the future of manufacturing?

Yes. By letting companies prototype faster 3D printing will lead to quicker iterations, faster time to market and more niche products. By 3D printing certain parts companies can produce on demand and offer more finely attuned products. By using 3D printing extensively companies can make what their c...
