3D Printing - Page 2

I would see no reason for me to get a top of the line 3D printer unless I was working with something other than plastic. I have seen a 3D printer where it uses concrete and created a house. Now that is something that is interesting to me.

There's really not a whole lot of reasons to need a very fancy 3D printer; however, the cheap ones are kind of prone to getting plugged up with material and misaligning (And of course they are expensive to fix). If you are making something with metal to sell as jewelry, and it is going to be small, a good printer would be useful. If you are printing parts for a machine, a good printer would probably also be wise.

A concrete printer sounds pretty cool. It would probably have to be really big though.

Yeah it was not small. There were a lot of cement mixer type trucks there to make sure it was filled so it could print out the house.

3D-printing of glass now possible

Three-dimensional printing allows extremely small and complex structures to be made even in small series. A new method now allows glass to be used for this technique. As a consequence of the properties of glass, such as transparency, thermal stability and resistance to acids, the use of this material in 3D-printing opens up manifold new applications in production and research, such as optics, data transmission, and biotechnology.

This is another advance that will make life better and easier for a lot of people. My question is, how many workers will this put out of work?

3D Printing

Probably very few. 3d printing is most useful for prototype fabrication, not general production, and you still need people to both design the prototype and run the machines in the former case.

Then this sounds like a win win for humanity. I like that some technology advances don't come with a personal cost in liss hobs.
