3D printing acquires more territory every year, so it is no surprise that this process of creating 3-dimensional objects has so many trend followers. In this post, we will cover the main 3D printing trends for 2016, with a focus on consumer 3D printers, and will list their pros and cons.
“Pattern” is the parameter I would recommend you to pay your attention to, which is used to print out support structures and a raft. I advise you to use “rectilinear” -straight lines. It is enough for support structures and easy to remove from a printed model.
In this part I would like to describe one of the most important Slicer’s parameter.
I would like to make your life easier, that is why I decided to share my experience!
The story is dedicate to all home 3D printers’ owners, who use ABS and PLA materials. Those who have novolescence printers – your model will be cool without any advice, that’s for sure 😉
I want to share my first experience in 3D printing, if to be precise it was 3D printable file of Video game scale model, designed by Gambody Team.
Software used was also provided by those guys – Repetier-Host Gambody, and I’m happy to share my thoughts here. I made my fare share of mistakes, but it was all made for the sake of tests, and now I’m ready to save your time 🙂
If you could print anything you want with your 3D printer, what would it be? A human? A car? And maybe a house? Recently the ambitious plan of some Dutch lovers of 3D technology came in action and pretty soon a 3D printed house in Amsterdam will be welcoming its guests. Since it will be located near one of the Amsterdam canals it’s called 3D Print Canal House.
Kitchen is a sacred place of any house. It’s hard to find a person, who wouldn’t like to have a few beautifully designed and highly functional accessories at his cooking corner. And 3D printing technologies suit best for providing you and your friends with an abundance of stylish and non-standard kitchenware.
While you are choosing what is the best purpose for your home 3D-printer: to create another coffee cup or a character from The Simpsons or Futurama, scientists from all over the world are trying out the ways how 3D-printing technology can save your life.
In the minds of many people 3D printing technology is closely connected with progress, future and success. Such associations create a great basis for PR managers to use the image of this technology for proper brand building. This way they manage to kill to birds with one stone: to show the brand keeps up with the enormous pace of life and to equip new technology, which allows cheaper and more sophisticated product production.
3D technology is already actively used by a number of world leading companies
In the childhood plenty of us dreamt of a special machine, which could create as many toys as we wanted. It took some time for this child dream to come true and now your kids can have this magic machine, which we (adults) prefer to call 3D printer.
Growing popularity of home 3D printers is going to totally change toys industry, since there are so many reasons why 3D printed toys are much better than ordinary ones.
Many people percept 3D printing technologies only as another toy designed to entertain and create plenty of neat and funny cups, stands or action figures. But in fact there are many ways of using 3D printers for the good of mankind. One of them has already proved to be quite efficient and, what’s more important, cheap – we are talking about 3D prosthetics.
We can rightfully claim that the future inventors and science fiction writers wrote about has finally come. 3D design makes so many things possible that the boundaries of this industry are really hard to imagine. It can be used in so many spheres starting from production of goods for kitchen or studying and ending with medical and art fields. It wouldn’t take long and 3D printer will take its place in every house and will become as usual device as TV-set or fridge.
