3D printing is a technology that builds objects based on digital model files, using bondable materials such as powdered metal or plastic, and printing them layer by layer. 3D printing technology is not just a cutting-edge basic technology. Its future development must not rely solely on its own accumulation and improvement. The future 3D printing technology must be the integrated development of other related technologies. So, what are the applications of 3D printing in various industries?
“Air Bike” is the world’s first printed bicycle manufactured by the European Aerospace Defense and Aerospace Corporation based in Bristol, UK, using 3D printers and 3D printing technology. This bicycle uses nylon material, which is strong like steel and aluminum alloy, and is 65% lighter than metal materials. What’s more interesting is that the wheels, chains, and bearings of the “air bike” are all printed at one time. There is no need for the original assembly process of manufacturing parts and then assembling the parts together. After printing, the bicycle can move freely. The manufacturing process of bicycles is as simple as printing discrete lines in flat printing. 3D printers can print objects that are not connected to each other in space.
In medicine, using 3D printing to modify the combination of two-photon polymer and biofunctional materials into capillaries, not only has good elasticity and human compatibility, but also can be used to replace necrotic blood vessels, combine with artificial organs, and partially replace drugs Experimental animals under development. At the Biotechnical Fair in Germany in October 2011, the artificial capillaries printed with a 3D printer attracted the attention of the participants. These artificial capillaries have been used in clinical medicine.
