With impressive changes and developments lately, 3D printing technology is taking aviation, automotive, wind energy, and medical industries by storm. Here are the latest trends in 3D printing technology that companies into 3D printing services must know.
Speedier Printing Process:-
The demand for fast 3D printing has been felt long back. But due to the limitations of 3D printing technology, it has remained a distant dream. A new technology has evolved that is giving 3D printing process the much-needed stimulus. Now printing faster and without any interruption is possible with Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) technology. 3D printing in Australia is adopting CLIP for liquid resin printing.
The moment one thinks about a robot, a stiff image made of metal and maneuvered by a remote control come to the mind. Their stiffness made them walking on any terrain or surface just impossible. With the latest 3D printing technology, the headless robot is provided with 3D-printed soft rubber legs. The robot made of hard and soft materials can walk and climb any types of terrain and perform jobs that was impossible for rigid robots.
Bigger 3D Printers:-
Printing functional parts and components for aviation and wind energy sectors was complex due to the small size of 3D printers. Not only the printing was time-consuming, but also expensive to have huge and special tools to print wings of an aircraft. With Hybrid 3D printing, the printing process has become faster, and economical too. Further, the 3D-printed wing components are lighter too.
Fully Functional Parts with 3D Printing:-
3D printing of complex electronics parts in one step is now possible. Printing plastic materials that conduct electricity is convenient. This means rapid prototyping services for functional objects is viable.
