3D Printing Applications and Trends

3D printing is an incremental manufacturing technology that belongs to the rapid prototyping technology. It is a technology that uses molding equipment to build entities based on the three-dimensional model data of parts or objects.

3D Printing Applications

The use of 3D printing technology can not only quickly produce 1:1 physical models, but also provide real evaluation of product's human-computer interaction, making it more in line with human needs. After the birth of the 3D printer, it was mainly used in the early stages for model making in industries such as aerospace, machinery, medical treatment, and construction. With its further maturity, the industrial dlp 3d printer has begun to be used to manufacture high-tech components, such as car and plane parts, skin, bones, and other living tissues. It's also widely used in the military field. Experts predict that in the near future, products such as shoes, glasses, kitchen utensils, and cars can all be produced using a 3D printer. As a leading  industrial 3D printer manufacturer, union technology is widely used in aerospace, electronics and electrical appliances, dental care, cultural and creative, education, construction, footwear and other industries, and we offer high-quality 3d shoe printing machine for sale.


Trends in 3D Printing Applications

3D printing is one of the most revolutionary technologies in the industry. Although it has not yet surpassed traditional manufacturing technology, it is becoming mainstream. More and more industrial 3D printer manufacturers are adopting this technology, especially as it continues to improve.

  • On-demand spare part production. One of the most promising applications of 3D printing in manufacturing is the production of spare parts. In traditional setup, if a machine breaks down, an employee must go to the warehouse to look for spare parts, or even order new parts. With 3D printing, they can manufacture the required parts internally in just a few minutes. In addition to saving time, it also saves inventory space. Manufacturers will save money and be able to improve operational efficiency. These benefits are very important for manufacturers, so more facilities will apply 3D printing here.


  • More prefabricated space. 3D printing has always been a popular application for prefabrication, and this trend will continue. Whenever manufacturers start producing new parts or products, they can use 3D printing to create early models. This reduces waste, saves time, and allows manufacturers to switch from planning to application faster and more economically. As more and more manufacturers use 3D printing to produce products, this may lead to more risk for them. Since the production cost of newly created models will not be too high, more companies may be willing to try different designs.
