3D Printing – Technology

Posted on: August 30, 2011

How many of you have heard of 3D printing? No I am not making it up  there really is such a thing and our industry does utilize it! Recently, one of our students sent me this video where they showed how they took a large wrench and created a 3D print of it. I thought this would be a post to share with you as many of you might not realize that this technology is available though it is quite expensive.

This video depicts recreating the wrench from start to finish using computer technology and a 3D printer.

The next two videos show how 3D printing is being used in architecture industry. The first one is about 5 minutes long while the last one is about 2 minutes in length.I hope you find them informative!
