3D Printing Technology May Change Human Life

From self-repairing pipes to printed organs, to t-shirts that are bulletproof. These very avant-garde-sounding things are likely to arrive with the new 3D printing technology. The new 3D printing technology was the hottest topic at the TED conference held in Vancouver, Canada in April of this year. Five of these trends are particularly noteworthy. 3D printing technology is likely to change people’s lives in the future. Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, predicted that Nike is likely to become a pure software company in the next decade, thanks to 3D printing. In the future, traditional product manufacturers won’t have to provide users with actual products. Instead, they will release copyrighted 3D-printed blueprints. Users can simply print the product at home or at a nearby 3D printing store. Digital 3D printing factories are also growing rapidly around the world. This means that traditional forms of production are beginning to shift. Direct digital manufacturing can reduce global sourcing, manufacturing costs, provide more local jobs, and also help to compress production costs. 3D printing is far more creative than people can imagine. Custom materials will lead to a broader scope of development and numerous innovative experiences. Already, doctors have successfully created a tool for […]
