3D Printing Technology and Innovations

Abstract

Natalia Williams

3D Printing also known as Additive manufacturing. It turns digital 3D models into solid objects by building them up in layers. The technology was first invented in the 1980s, and since that time has been used for Rapid Prototyping (RP). However, in the last few years, 3D printing has additionally started to evolve into a next-generation manufacturing technology that has the potential to allow the local, on-demand production of final products or parts thereof. This technology is used in the fields of jewellery, footwear, industrial design, Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering, and many others
