3D printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects using a digital file. 3D printing is time-saving and uses less material than traditional approaches.
3D printed Prosthetics
Engineers have been able to develop 3D printed prosthetics which are completely customized to wear. A traditional prosthetic hand can cost up to a thousand dollars but the 3D printed prosthetic just cost $50. However, it is important to note that the 3D printed prosthetics need to match up the durability of the traditional prosthetics.
3D printed Homes
An affordable home is a dream of many but it is tough to build one due to the high costs involved in the construction process. A construction tech company ICON with the help of a housing charity organization is building an affordable house for $4000 using their own 3D printing robot.
3D printed Food
A lot of people might feel skeptic about the food printed not even prepared by a machine. Companies are determined enough to create 3D printed food. BeeHex is making 3D printed pizza and Dylan’s candy house is making edible candies using the 3D printing technology.
3D printed Homes in Space
NASA has made its intention clear for reaching on the moon and creating a habitable space for human beings. NASA also invited a 3D printed habitat challenge for making homes on Mars.
