Exploits and Frontiers

The advantages of minimum hardware setups (lower cost for application tools, less space consumption, less human-labor, etc) will lead this versatile invention to thrive in a wide variety of industries.

It excels in customized production on one hand whilst keeping stock piles within arm’s length on another.

These combined characteristics help cater for individual needs without attributing exorbitant costs – something that is crucial in today’s economy.

Diversity of interests

Besides PLA and ABS filaments, other materials such as nylon, ceramics, aluminum and titanium have become stable printing materials. The diversity of filament materials opens a new horizons for creative minds. In automobile, aerospace and other precision-driven industries, 3D printing has already acquired a firm footing in their R&D. In many cases, parts and accessories are already manufactured and used in the market. On the medical front, patients requiring dental and various implants may well be the receiving ends of this technology in the offing. In arts, artists have started to explore with printed objects on installations and other media. Soon the word “printing” will have a new dimension of meanings in the art world.

Individuals and market

Closer to our everyday lives, this advanced tool is on its path toward being the “next big thing” for fashion and jewelry designers. Many of the printed creations have already been well received on catwalks and at retail shops. In style-conscious marketing circles, people are keen to exploit on the customization strength the tool offers.

Since gifts and souvenirs play an important part in marketing, 3D printers can deliver individualized products such as mobile phone case, card holder, nametag and other novelties at relatively low prices. An extension of thought may lead to personalized products in hospitality, F&B and other service industries. On thing is certain – marketing will never be the same again.

Future is bright

With desktop printers and 3D scanners gaining popularity by the day, hobbyists are still the largest sector of users. Whatever their interests – from the most mundane to the funkiest, they are one of the strongest forces that stretch boundaries, thanks to the open source platforms they help create. In return, the combined forces of individuals and groups enable the cross-fertilization of ideas. As such, we are yet to see bigger bangs on the potentials and applications of 3D printing technology.

開發和前進

無論在時間,金錢,甚至設備上,3D打印都為使用者節省了不少負擔。因此,這個技術在不同行業都大放光芒。
它能夠為用家度身調整生產模式的同時,不停地在伸手可碰的地方生產出大量存貨。
這些優點都為商家減少了龐大的開支,在這個經濟市場內製造了更多發展機會。

個人化

除了PLA和ABS材料外,市面上亦開發了其他種類的材料例如尼龍,陶瓷,鋁和鈦等等。林林種種的材料更加迎合了不同的實用概念。不論汽車,航空,或其他需要高精度的行業,都在生產線上應用了3D打印技術。因此市場上開始出現了不少3D打印出來的機械部件。另外,3D打印亦為需要牙齒或其他器官移植的病人提供幫助。現代藝術家亦使用了3D打印部件作為藝術裝置的一部份。在不久將來,”打印”一詞將會展示一個全新的世界。

個人及市場應用

3D打印在時裝及珠寶設計行業上亦貢獻良多。業內人士都對這個技術的創造力充滿好奇和憧憬,令3D打印的產品在時裝展覽或零售店內大受歡迎。未來3D打印將能夠為設計師們做出更加個人化和配合客戶需要的產品。

部份市場宣傳手法依賴送贈小禮品和記念品予消費者。3D打印能夠更方便和便宜地製造個人化的贈品例如電話套,卡面座,名牌和其他物件。這個技術更可以伸延至其他行業例如酒店業。市場營銷從此踏入新一步。

前路明亮

使用桌上3D打印機和掃描器的業餘愛好者不斷增加。在互聯網上他們開發的軟件隨處可見。雖然各人的目的各有不同,但他們都是一個不斷推進這個科技的勢力。加上技術團隊,網上經常出現不少令人期待並等待開發的新概念。不斷地想像,不斷地突破,3D打印絕對是前路明亮。
