Computer and internet brought revolution while bringing newer technologies to the core. 3D Printing is one such technology which was brought to ease human work. Earlier, traditional methods of manufacturing were prevalent that were time consuming. Digital technology has opened new doors for the various businesses through 3D Printing.
The use of computer designing is in two formats 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional. 3D Printing, also known as Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a process that makes a digital model into three dimensional solid object of any shape. It involves successive layers of materials that are computer controlled to create an object.
Mostly three technologies Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Stereolithography (SLA) and Selective Laser Sintering(SLS) technologies are used for printing. This technology is used by various industries like Defense, Medical, Architectural, Aerospace and jewellery designing among others. If you want your object to be colourful, then full color 3D printing option is also available with few materials.
Architecture is the field, where you need to plan the layout of the project before delivering to the client. They need to show an exact miniature model of the final project to the client. Right from showing amenities in the project to building and small human figures, the layout should look perfect for the client. You can use color architecture models of buildings, gardens and other amenities to make it more appealing.
If you want your small digital version or your favourite cartoon’s small version, then 3D printed figurines will excite you. You can make digital models of human figures and then print them according to your choices. They scan the human figure to be printed through 3D scanning and then do the printing work.
Several materials are used for 3D printing like plastic, steel, acrylic and sandstone among others. The use of materials depends upon the quality and usage of the object to be printed. Sandstone gives you the advantage of full colour printing. Sandstone 3D Printing is used mostly for figurines, life-like models, avatars, and other products that lend themselves to colorful, high-quality printing.
