So, how did the folks in Dubai manage to conceptualize an entire building with 3D Printing and what exactly are the advantages of such a project. We attempt to find out.
What is 3D Printing actually, is it related to conventional printing technique?
3D Printing, though sounding similar to conventional “Printing”, is way ahead of the legacy technology. It involves people creating a virtual design of the concept they have in mind, with the help of an appropriate 3D program.
The virtual 3D design, created with the above methods, is passed through additive processes (a customized 3D printing procedure) to create multiple layers of the desired material and then the final solid object is made.
3D Printing also involves the use of 3D scanners to accurately reproduce a 3D version of the objects that users have designed.
It is scientifically and practically proved that 3D Printing is beneficial:
Future of 3D Printing:
In diverse industries such as Construction, Aviation, Automobile (Automation), Medicine, and for the general everyday users.
