We all hear about 3D printing and many of us have seen 3D printing. This represents a market in strong growth and expansion and which has enormous potential since it is a technology capable of completely changing the production process. Mainly the reason why companies invest in this sector arises from the need to speed up the development of products and prototypes. Two types of printing are currently marking the market and they are polymers and plastics printing and metal-based printing. Then there are several 3D printing technologies that present main differences in the ways in which the layers are printed that we divide into: FDM (FUSED DEPOSIT MODELING) – FFF (FUSED FILAMENT FABRICATION) – SLA (STEREOLITHOGRAPHY) – DLP (DIRECT LIGHT PROCESSING) – BINDER JETTING – MULTIJET / POLYJET – EBM (ELECTRON BEARM MELTING) – SLM (SELECTIVE LASER MELTING) – SLS (SELECTING LASER SINTERING) – DMLS (DIRECT METAL LASER SINTERING) – SDL (SELECTIVE DEPOSITION LAMINATION).
But the use of 3D printing already accompanies the future, in fact through contour crafting and which is a technology formed by mechanical arms that can build in layers, NASA believes this is a reliable system that can be used for the construction of houses on the planet. Mars. It is even thought of building the next satellites directly in space with a great saving in terms of production costs.
It is also widely used in the medical field, given the great results that have been achieved in the ophthalmology field with the 3D printing of a cornea and with the ambition of printing all the organs using biological materials.
To do this there will be new 3D printer professionals who will have a large space of employment shortly with a highly specialized job.
