From 3D-Printed Human Corneas to Reactive Printed Robots

 - Oct 2, 2018
Companies across all industries are making use of 3D-printing techniques. From making the product more affordable and sustainable to experimenting with new types of materials, the technology has definitely become a favorite across the board.

The usage is vast. In architecture, for example, Emerging Objects is utilizing 3D-printing techniques to establish a relationship between technology and sustainability. Moreover, the resulting lush structures are affordable.

BigRep, on the other hand, is a product that harnesses 3D-printing to make flat tires obsolete. Cutting down maintenance times, the process of manufacturing produces airless components for one's bike.

Aside from the commercial and creative uses, 3D-printing techniques are incredibly important for the health and medical industry. Researchers and developers have been improving the quality of life for many with the manufacturing tech innovation through things like in vitro ear regeneration, custom printed bandages, 3D-printed human corneas and more.
