A few days ago, I have come across a post stating that, “I believe in the near future we all might 3D print our houses and buildings.” Although it gave me a little chuckle it made me recall the history we have made. When we talk about the history of something, it is indeed necessary to start at the beginning. The origin! Way back in the late 1980s.
‘3D Printing’ is Turning your Digital Data into Real 3D Physical Object
In layman terms, 3D printing is the process of making a physical object considering a three-dimensional digital model, which was merely an idea in 1980. Although many industry experts and tech giants have discovered ways to print layers and create 3D objects, it is Charles Hulls who made it to the end by giving the world first-of-its-kind 3D printer and we call it SLA printer. Hull used the acrylic-based materials(commonly knowns as photopolymers) to evolve from liquid to solid using UV lights.
Side fact: Hull is referred to as “the father” of 3D printing.Charles Hull
Thereafter, many people have come up with many new technologies but none of them were perfect. They have been extremely expensive for common people like you and me, but their abilities were undeniable. Today, looking over the years, the evolution of 3D printing industry just gives me a shiver down the spine. We are in a society where every school, home, office, and businesses across the world could get access to 3d printers and make impossible possible! I mean, come on, I could now print my dream engagement ring without any hassle.
Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing are Same?
Oh, well, speaking about 3D printing, many people still out there assume that 3D printing and additive manufacturing are way different. But, they are not. Additive manufacturing and 3D printing are the synonyms of the same process. The only thing is that people who work in an industrial or manufacturing setting tend to call it as additive manufacturing as it sounds more “formal.” On the contrary, the students, hobbyists, and media call it as 3D printing as it sounds more offhand and eventually it became more popular.
Coming back, the world is changing. The technology is thriving. The human race is on fire. Yes, we know it. Thus, I am not gonna bore with you another piece of opinion on consumerism rather let’s jump straight to the point is. And my point is, humans, want they want and they want it in the next minute. It is me! Because there are times when I complained that the mentioned 2 minutes noodles were taking longer to get ready. I want everything instantly and it wasn’t just me. Because we live in a world where speed matters!
Just like every other industry under the starlit sky, the 3D printing industry has also come a long way. So before you start insulting me like your history teacher that this was decades ago, read on the current standards and the future of the 3D printing industry in all major divisions.
The 3D Printing Industry Spread to all major Divisions
Real estate has probably experienced one of the highest technological disruptions over the years. Lately, 3D printing is commonly used for developing scale models of the actual projects since it is way cheaper than the traditional construction process. Also, it becomes highly beneficial for people to design their own houses. By experts’ sake, if 3D printing comes to commonplace, no one ever needs to go out to the contractors or look for the real estate agents. They can get housing with accurate layout plans and work together with architects to welcome uber-cool unique living spaces.
The future of 3D printing in real estate looks promising. Many real estate companies have already started experimenting with different techniques on different soils, surfaces, and spaces. It is still in rudimentary stages but I am certainly looking forward to something big.
Compliance, Qualification, Documentation, and Standards:
Ugh! Not again. We have all been here. The proper documentation work is not less than a hemicrania.
But the future is affirmative. Because many companies are prohibited from doing business if they do not have certain certifications.
It is all about personalization, baby! The future of 3D printing could not look brighter than here. Over the years, the tech-reliant industry getting on board more marketing, sales, and organizational managers. In many cases, the companies’ bottom line has grown much higher with the incorporation of creative professionals.
If people know that shedding a little few extra bucks could get them something a lot faster, they do not mind a second for paying it. With the uber-advanced 3D products, you can now expect a higher level of professional engagement and stand out from your competitors.
The Evolution and The Future of 3D Printing
Evolution of 3D Printing has already happened it spread to all major Industries and Continuously it will Occupy Every Small and Big Industry i bet on it
