The Materials Of 3D Printing

3D printing is starting to gain global attention as a very advanced form of manufacturing. This technology is changing the way engineers think when it comes down to product development and creation. So, what exactly is it? 3D printing is the layer by layer creation of products through laying down powder and fusing it together. Let me go into further detail. In a 3D printer, the machine used for manufacturing products through 3D printing, there is a build envelope, or tray where the product(s) will be developed. In this tray, powder will be laid down one layer at a time. Each one of these layers isn't bigger than a few microns. (That's pretty small) A 3D printer will use a 3D computer file as the blueprint for the product being created. On each layer (dependent on the blueprint) the powder will be fused together with glue, or through a laser melting process. As layers keep stacking up, they will be fused together at some points, and some layers will have no fusion at all. This can lead to the creation of very meticulous models with unheard of capabilities.
The final product will consist of quite a few layers fused together just as the 3D artist intended it to be. The product ready for 3D printing will be surrounded by powder that wasn't fused, but that can be dusted off and removed. This form of layer by layer manufacturing can be used to create amazing products in the manufacturing world. Fully functional parts can come right out of the machine, high detail products, and unheard of products such as a ball within a ball also exist. 3D printing leaves engineers shaking their heads with awe.
Another great aspect about 3D printing would be the variety of materials to choose from. I mentioned a powder being laid down earlier. This powder can consist of one of many materials out there. There are over 50 to choose from when it comes down to actually creating your product. There are so many options and so many details you can shoot for when it comes down to 3D printing your product. Developers can choose to go after a strong thermoplastic like ABS, a precious metal like platinum or silver, a flexible material like tango-black, or a mechanical material like cobalt chrome. Some materials include fine silver, ABS plastics, nylons, titanium, stainless steel, sandstone, and high detail Nano-materials. When it comes down to your product, you have a vast library of materials to choose from within 3D printing. If you're in the medical industry, you could use chemical resistant and safe but strong materials like titanium. If you're in the engineering business, you might want to look at Inconel for high strength and heat. Perhaps you are just a 3D artist who would like to see your work come to life; full color sandstone is probably for you. Maybe you're going to create some jewelry? Check out sterling silver. The options of materials are very vast! When it finally comes down to manufacturing your product, 3D printing is where you need to go for your prototyping!

Whether it's automation or artificial intelligence, the rapid convergence of technology and business often determines Products’s competitiveness.
