3D Printing: More Uses than You Think

Many people think of 3D Printing and think of prototypes and medical models. The technology’s uses are actually much more varied than many imagine, though, and range from art to aerospace engineering — and beyond.

In fact, in 2012, the University of Glasgow, UK, demonstrated that 3D printers can be used to create chemical compounds. Impressively, they can even be used to create compounds that have never been seen before. The printer first created chemical reaction vessels before introducing reactants into them as chemical links that react to one another. The scientists were able to use the Fab Home open source printer, which cost $2,000, and didn’t have to create special technology beyond what was readily available. The same year, Cornell Creative Machines Lab also demonstrated that food production is possible using a 3D printer.

While 3D Prototype won’t create chemical compounds or food, it does use the same innovative technology and can help your business to grow in the same innovative ways. Look at our services page to see how we can help you.
