3D printers have long been capable of printing rocket-shaped

In the field of healthcare, additive manufacturing also holds out great promise.3D Systems, in collaboration with CollPlant, is working on printing artificial tissues and scaffolds, with the goal of advancing regenerative medicine through the use of rhCollagen as a Metal 3D Printing substrate. The electric vehicle industry has a similar story to tell. Local Motors Industries, a company with only 130 employees, has already printed a 3D car, which has since been withdrawn from the market. They are currently printing an urban electric shuttle, with digital design advancements being cited as a contributing factor.

We were all very excited about the prospect of having model versions of the Brooklyn Bridge and iconic cartoon characters to adorn our desks. Now, 3D printing is being used to address much larger issues and solve complex problems across a wide range of industries on a variety of scales.

The fundamental principle of 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is the layering of materials to create an object. Whereas cutting and soldering were once required to construct the same type of structures, additive manufacturing gracefully adds layers to create the same type of structures. These results, on the other hand, are stronger, lighter, and more temperature resistant, and they require fewer parts.

Applications Demonstrating What the Future Holds for 3D Printing
While there are countless examples of 3D printing being used for incredible things, the following are a few examples of what the future may hold:3D printers have long been capable of printing rocket-shaped objects, but now companies in the aerospace industry are actually printing rockets. Additive manufacturing is being used by companies such as Aerojet Rocketdyne for rocket engine and defense system applications. These companies cite reduced lead times, affordability, and innovative design approaches as factors in their decision to use additive manufacturing to deliver hypersonic flight.

According to industry experts, the most significant advancements will occur in the technology that facilitates additive manufacturing. Printers will almost certainly become even faster in the future, allowing them to handle larger, more industrial-scale projects. Forbes also reports that Junying has developed machines that allow additive manufacturing to take place in uncontrolled environments, allowing them to be used in the field. As a result, they are more useful in remote areas and enable a greater variety of 3D printed structures.

3D printers will also increase versatility in other ways, such as the ability to print in a variety of materials, including metal and even ceramics, all within the same machine. Printers will be able to print a single object that contains multiple materials, paving the way for a significantly broader range of 3D printing parts applications.

The use of integrated CAD/CAM software, such as Autodesk's Fusion 360, will allow additive manufacturing to soar to entirely new heights. The Fusion 360 team is constantly brainstorming new and improved ways to improve and enhance the additive manufacturing process. We recently announced a new method for generating additive manufacturing outcomes through the use of generative design. This new method does a better job of meeting minimum thickness requirements, balancing design mass, and minimizing support material — without sacrificing shape quality in order to be fully self-supporting.

Hyundai, Panasonic, and other leading companies have investigated the advantages of using generative design in conjunction with additive manufacturing.

Nora Toure, the founder of Women in 3D Printing, predicts that “there will be an countless number of companies that have adopted additive manufacturing into their supply chain commercially, with a vast majority of products being produced on-demand and locally (not necessarily through additive manufacturing, but rather as a combination of manufacturing tools, including additive manufacturing).”
