3D Printing

Have you heard about 3D printing? It seems to be everywhere at the moment. You will have likely seen it in the news. It's used for many remarkable things, from printing human heart valves, to building car engines. But do you really know what it is?

Does 3D printing apply to me?

3D printing is a process in which a digital file is converted into a real, 3D model. It's also referred to as 'additive manufacturing'. 3D printed objects are created by splitting the model into layers. These layers are then created one at a time from the bottom-up by.

It might seem like a bit of a novelty at first, but 3D printing can be used for work as well as play. 3D printers are valuable additions to many workplaces. For example:

  • Education - can be used to create models to demonstrate concepts & in design technology
  • Prototypes - can provide a cost-effective means of product development
  • Product samples - for events before product has actually been created
  • Spare parts - will even allow you to make parts no longer in production by traditional means
  • Special tools - you'll be able to get specialist tools printed in-house

3D printers in business can provide a cost-effective means of speeding up product development. With a way of making prototypes in-house, you cut down the time it takes for your vision to become reality. You'll also save money by only having your own running costs to cover. They'll increase engagement in an education setting. Using 3D printers allows for students to more easily grasp concepts and learn through creating.
