It was only in cartoons we saw absurd-looking machineries producing items, such as an entire house or a car from out of nowhere. Today, that absurd idea is becoming true with 3D printers. They are here to stay, and have accomplished so much as to print out concrete houses in China and shelter mud huts in Africa.
According to recent history, 3D printing development began in the 1990s, and the technology today is just at its very young state. Despite the limitations, it was able to produce so many designs by just using specific raw materials.
For example, even fashion designers are using the machine to design and manufacture an impossible look of a pair of shoes, dresses or even jewellery. For medical applications, medical technologists are using the technology to design prosthesis or even use stem cells to produce new, fully-functioning spare organs for people.
So far, only five 3D printers with full functionality are available worldwide. Most technologists are positive that like paper printers, 3D printers will become a mainstream, home component.
Most are positive that people could download recipes and print food using the right raw materials. The 3D printer can become a hardware shop’s best attribute, allowing them to produce custom screws for different needs, increasing their sales and audience.
The world has yet to see the full power of 3D printers and its capability to change how the world lives.
