There has  been a lot of interest lately in 3D Printing from all sorts of different industries. The reason behind this is that the impact that this technology can have on our society will help change and shape the way we produce things in the future.

The whole creation process includes creating a 3D real thing of any type of shape from an electronic instructional model. Not like making things from a mould where you firstly need to get a real mould to make the object, 3D printing utilizes an additive process of doing things, in a way that you put layer after layer on top of each other to make a real object.

If you can make an electronic model by utilizing one of the software programs that are accessible to buy and can be used by the printers, then you should be able to make a printable copy of it. Just think about all the possibilities that could be created with this. Can you just think about what a huge effect this would have on so many different industries? 3D printing is definitely an amazing and life-changing type of technology. Normal factories as we understand them will change as people can build these things on their own in the comfort of their own homes.

The amazing part is that the creation method can use practically any type of substance from plastic to metals and even wood and rubber. Now it’s time for different companies to start creating different ways of using this technology so that they can be the first to make them accessible to the average person. Many of the larger companies have already started making different creative ways of doing this through amazing innovations. Investors also have come flooding in throwing millions of dollars at startups in an effort to cash in on this new technology.

Just imagine having access to a machine that can create anything you like. Now just think about something that now is able to make practically anything you can dream of. In order to create anything you’d just need a printer, the right materials, and the blueprint. This will make thousands of opportunities for designers to create amazing designs for the consumer to create at home. If you’re sceptical, remember how when normal printers were introduced many people said that they wouldn’t be used in offices, or even in your home. Of course now we know that they were wrong as the printer industry is still a thriving business.

It’s also a good sign when the President of the United States mentions a technology in one of his speeches. Barack Obama mentioned 3D Printing as a technology that we should pay attention to. We should remember that just because something seems like it is a space-aged technology it doesn’t mean that it isn’t achievable. Most likely someday you’ll be able to walk into a department store, find what you want, and then go print it out at home.

Instead of the physical object holding the value it will be the design code that will hold all the worth. A whole new world of open source and closed source coding will come out of this revolution of coding that will give great opportunities to everyone to express their creativity.

On top of that they’ll be a whole new world of desktop fabrication. People will be able to create their own products right from the comfort of their own homes. Creation won’t be restricted to developers in big offices in high buildings, but instead all you’ll need is a desktop computer in order to realize your creations. This self-empowering creative outlet will put more power in the hands of the normal person and less in the hands of the marketing giants. It will lead to a revolution of sorts for the common man and put the industrial revolution back in his hands.

Additive manufacturing will allow for the producers of products to create goods without creating excess waste during the creation process. It will make for a cleaner production process, the use of less raw materials, and thus a cheaper overall product. With this sort of system product creation will enter a whole new world of waste less processing that will make everything cheaper. The overall effect could be a golden age for the industrial system as a whole.

In conclusion, 3D printing is an amazing new technology that will change all our lives, whether we like it or not. There will be some resistance from traditional brick and mortar companies as 3D printing will threaten their businesses, but over time, if they embrace it, there should be a synthesis that makes goods cheaper for the consumer, and thus the large companies can focus more on customer service and design.
