main features

3D printing has brought a worldwide manufacturing revolution. In the past, component design completely depended on the realization of production process, and the emergence of 3D printer will subvert this production idea, which makes enterprises no longer consider the production process when producing components, and any complex design can be realized through 3D printer.

3D printing can directly generate objects of any shape from computer graphics data without machining or mold, which greatly shortens the production cycle and improves productivity. Although it still needs to be improved, 3D printing technology has great market potential and is bound to become one of the many breakthrough technologies in the manufacturing industry in the future.

3D printing enables people to buy such printers in some electronic product stores, and factories are also selling them directly. Scientists say the use of 3D printers is still limited, but one day people will be able to print more practical items through 3D printers.

3D printing technology is very important for NASA's space exploration mission. More than 30% of the existing spare parts of the international space station can be manufactured by this 3D printer. The equipment will use polymers and other materials to make articles layer by layer using extrusion incremental manufacturing technology. 3D printing experiment is one of the key research projects of NASA in the future. 3D printing parts and tools will enhance the reliability and safety of space missions, and reduce the cost of space missions because they do not have to be transported from the earth.
