How 3D Printers Are Changing Our World

3D printers are changing the world! Do you want to know how? Come on board let’s take you through the reasons why 3D printers are the future.

Get Replacements at Any Time of the Day and Night

24/7 availability of alternatives could be the most critical contribution of three-dimensional printing to the modern world. By utilizing a 3D printer, you can do the printing of the specific part you want to use immediately, instead of being forced to visit the store for a replacement or having to buy a piece of any replacement online, which will require some days before it gets to your house.

Purchase Prosthetics at Low Prices

3D printing is used for the production of inexpensive prostheses in areas in which they are in need of them. Such areas are in the war-ravaged countries like Sudan in which war casualties who lost their limbs, have no means for a replacement. Not Impossible Labs’ CEO, Mark Ebeling, has established a hospital in Sudan that has a 3D printer. The objective is to create prosthetics which are more affordable (less than $100) than a traditional one.

Less Expensive Building Materials

In all parts of the world, the prices of homes are on the increase. Still, simultaneously, young persons are making attempts actively to bring about a reduction in their carbon footprint in several ways feasible, which include the building of their houses. 3D printers can assist in executing construction projects in an environmental-friendly manner, without any waste. Also, you can save some costs of transportation, and the recycling of materials carried out for a higher sustainable outcome.

Just Print That Chocolate

In this day and age, some printers are designed to print out foods such as pizza, chocolate, and candies. This is an excellent technique for a scenario such as during a space mission, in which astronauts don’t have the luxury to take the type of foods that are very common on earth here.

Get Parts Even In Space

Launch a space exploration requires enormous amounts of fuels and a great deal of preparation. Anytime a lousy occurrence happens there, spare parts or equipment could be limited in availability. Indeed, transport of items to space is a big deal financially, and space engineers/scientists could have to postpone getting a supply of needed part still their next mission or think of another solution to the challenge. But by using 3D printers, they can do the printing out of tools, parts, etc. required in an emergency situation. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, NASA, declared that it would do the shipping of a 3D printer for trial to the ISS (the International Space Station) in 2014 to know if the method would be an effective one.

Cut Down On Plastic Waste

Most plastics used nowadays are non-biodegradable, which constitute a threat to our surroundings. But, with the aid of 3D printers, recycling of the plastics can be done into filaments. According to experts, transforming plastics recycled into spools makes use of a lower amount of energy than the traditional method of recycling plastics.
