Not too long ago, the concept of 3D printing seemed outrageous; today, innovations in 3D printing are far and many. Designers use 3D printing technology for different reasons, but most agree that it is just a faster and more affordable way to manufacture certain products. Essentially, 3D printing allows designers to print different parts of something and assemble it together afterward.
On the consumer end, 3D printing means more customizable products. In terms of things like furniture and fashion, innovations in 3D printing allow for people to choose the dimensions and materials they want applied to the creation of the product in question.
It's no wonder then, that 3D printers have become increasingly prevalent in different industries, from jewelry and fashion design to architecture and automotive industries. Take a peek at this list of innovations in 3D printing and you'll see what I mean.
