3D printing is generally known as the process of making a physical object from a 3D digital model. To bring the model to life, it lays down thin layers of an object’s material in order to turn the CAD representation into a physical form.
3D printing brings two fundamental innovations: the manipulation of objects in their digital format and the manufacturing of new shapes by the addition of material.
3D printing offers an innovative approach for organ replacement, produced using 3D printing techniques. The primary use of printable organs is in transplantation. Research is currently being conducted on artificial hearts, kidneys, and liver structures, as well as other major organs.
Behind 3D printing, the most differentiating concept is that it is an additive production process. This is fundamentally different from any other conventional production techniques that already exist.
3D printing proves to be an innovative technology that encourages and drives innovation with unparalleled flexibility of design while being a tool-free process that eliminates prohibitive costs and lead times.
3D printing is also emerging as an energy-efficient technology that can provide environmental efficiencies in terms of both the manufacturing process itself, utilizing up to 90% of standard materials, and throughout the product operating life, through lighter and stronger design.
