New 3D Printer technology driven by innovation
Flashback to the 1980’s. Engineers had just started working on an industrial robot that would build from their imaginations. A machine that would build three-dimensional solid objects from the floor up using a variety of laying technologies.
Flash forward to the 21st century. The 3D printing industry is a $2 billion market and is growing at nearly 30% a year. Being able to create a physical product from your imagination has become the awe-inspiring idea driving the demand for this product. It is also lighting up the industrial field. Henry Ford probably never imagined being able to have an assembly line that would produce his model T’s from filaments of plastic.
3D printers are at the heart of the next industrial revolution where prototyping will be done in the same office the design is first conceived using CAD software. Where an architect can print their ideas in a 3 dimensional format rather than spend countless hours trying to build a precise model. Industry wise, the automotive, architectural, aerospace, and medical fields have been forever changed. This technology has endless possibilities within these fields and others. Imagine the ability to print any piece, part, prototype, or project right at your desk.
