One of the most notable emerging technologies in the industry is without a doubt 3d printing. Predicted to become a common household item as soon as 2020, it’s not hard to see why. Have you broken a cup in your house or are you missing a bolt for your engine that isn’t made anymore? Download the 3d model straight from the internet and have your printer do all the world. New printers emerge every month claiming to be the best 3d printer available, and this bodes well for the economic future of this new development.
Its possibilities are endless and the future is now. By now, the application of 3d printers has allowed for the creation of body parts with exact measures and the whole house being spawned out of nothing. This is all done through the use of filaments. By now, things have evolved beyond regular dust particle filaments and developed as far as beeswax and even wood printing.
3d printers are becoming cheaper and more accessible for anyone, paving the way for a tremendous impact on the consumer market as we know it. In the coming years, we will see three-dimensional printers evolve into a billion dollar industry that was previously never thought possible.
