3D printing technology that continues to create new miracles
What is 3D printing technology
3D printing (3DP) is a kind of rapid prototyping technology, also known as additive manufacturing. It is based on digital model files, using powdered metal or plastic and other bondable materials to construct by layer-by-layer printing. Object technology.
3D printing is usually achieved by material printers using digital technology. It is often used as a manufacturing model in mold manufacturing, industrial design and other fields, and then gradually used in the direct manufacturing of some products. There are already parts that have been printed using this technology. The technology has applications in jewelry, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering, firearms, and other fields.
3D printing powder type
Metal 3D printing powders such as: SS316L stainless steel powder, aluminum-based alloy AlSi7Mg powder, metal printing cobalt-chromium-molybdenum CoCrMo powder, Inconel alloy In625 powder, TC4 powder, 316 stainless steel powder, 304 stainless steel powder, 15-5 stainless steel powder, nickel-based alloy IN738 Powder, alloy CoCrW powder, nickel alloy IN718 powder, alloy CoCrW powder, etc.
What is the price of a 3D printer
3D printers have different prices based on different technology types. From the simplest thousand-yuan FDM desktop 3D printing to the most advanced FDM industrial 3D printer, the cost of a 3D printer may vary by hundreds of thousands of yuan. As you use more sophisticated printing technologies, the price of 3D printers tends to increase.
What are the disadvantages of 3D printing?
1. High energy consumption
2. 3D printing technology is expensive
3. Limited materials
4. 3D printers are not user-friendly
5. Harmful emissions
6. Excessive reliance on plastics
7.3D printer is very slow
8. Production of dangerous weapons
9. Copyright infringement
10. Lost manufacturing jobs
How long can 3D printed houses last?
Estimates vary, but most people believe that they should last at least about 50 to 60 years. Many 3D printed houses do contain wood elements, and if they are handled or maintained incorrectly, they may rot over time.
ExOne will launch the world's largest metal 3D printer
In the 3D printing industry, companies hope to use more abundant materials to achieve higher-quality finished parts. Recently, 3D printer manufacturer ExOne obtained a patent for inert construction chamber design and released a new version of X1 160Pro, which is the company's largest metal and ceramic printer to date.
The new X1 160Pro will be compatible with argon and nitrogen, two chemically inert gases commonly used in industrial 3D printing systems. Unlike the original model, the upcoming X1 160Pro can also be integrated with other auxiliary systems, such as curing ovens, powder conditioning systems, de-powdering stations, and airtight transport equipment for moving the build box between each station.
Once activated, users of the new system will be able to use more than 20 qualified binder jet materials for 3D printing, including Inconel, stainless steel, cobalt-chromium alloys, etc.
The world's first 3D printed vegan steak and may soon become popular in restaurants
To create another bizarre event in 2020, a company launched the world's first 3D printed vegan steak. Redefine Meat, an Israeli company headquartered in Rehovot, has released "Alt-Steak", which uses 3D printing technology to replicate the texture, flavor and appearance of real meat. The new Alt-Steak is made from soy and pea protein, coconut fat and sunflower oil as well as natural color and flavor. The artificial steak is designed to reproduce the muscle structure of beef, its protein content is high, and it is plant-based and does not contain cholesterol.
