While 3D printing materials have typically been metals and plastics, recent innovations have expanded the types of usable materials.
Aside from the materials 3D printers can use, it’s critical that these printers use them efficiently while extracting and reclaiming any unused material.
Consider these 3D printing use cases across various industries:
- Customizing and printing auto parts
- Casting in concrete for architecture and engineering projects
- Assembling crash dummies to better simulate crash impacts, particularly for elderly passengers
- Using isomalt sugar as a scaffolding to create complex biological structures, for human cell and tissue growth
