Top 3D Printing Trends

Igloo Articles 0

3D printing has become our daily routine, more or less. In many aspects in today’s lives we can implement 3D printing to improve the overall experience, whether it’s in the medical treatments, building materials, etc. 3D printing trends in 2019 will for sure keep surprising us, even though we’ve already seen a lot of fantastic uses, 3D printing doesn’t seize to amaze us. Here are some of the top 3D printing trends of this year.


3D Constructs & Building Materials

It’s already known that a specific 3D printers were able to print construction parts to assist in the faster building of a hospital in South Sudan war zone. Lulzbot Taz 6 3D printer was the hero in need since it printed a 3D parts for piping system of the mentioned hospital. This case wasn’t the first time a 3D printer helped humanity in crisis, and it certainly won’t be the last.


3D Printed Medical Implants

3D printing in the medical sector is old news since it already had helped in various situations. When technology is used for creating implants, we are left with a simple few rigid materials, but with 3D printers, we were able to print soft and precise silicone implant models and to give the best care for the patients in need.


3D Heavy Industry Parts

As we already know, a RAMLAB 3D printer had printed 3D boat propeller last year. Since the materials used for printing the propeller were very lightweight, they’ve decided to change their manufacturing processes to be able to implement the 3D printed parts because of their lower production costs, as well as engineering changes it brought since a lot had to be changed later on. Producing lightweight parts is a game changer in any heavy industry, especially in boat building, aircraft building, etc.
