Time Lapse of the Printing Process
How does 3D Printinging Work?
Step 1: So first create a picture of what you want printed out on a Software Program for a desired model .
Step 2: Then the Software will send the data to a 3D printer.
Step 3: Then the printer will start distributing layers of the preferred material to form the shape of the desired model.
Goods and Bads of 3D Printing
Good:Possibly no more organ transplants.
Bad: You can make guns.
Good:You can get a missing part of a satellite in space in the ISS.
Bad: You can make some really bad things...
Good:Easy to design and make a living room.
Bad:A 3D printer is expensive.
So all in all 3D printing is a pretty ok thing.
HISTORY OF 3D PRINTING
In order to understand modern 3D Printing fully we need to gain an understanding of the history of the concept of printing well “STUFF”.Writing first began with carving, then possibly using some substance (eg: berries, powder or ink) to paint or stamp all of these were at some point used in Hieroglyphics and other ancient texts 1s of 10s of years ago to 10s of thousands of years ago but carving oh it could date back to millions of years ago(we're talking like before humans or any earlier versions of humans crossed the land bridge many and many millenniums ago), but... it wasn't until about the 1400s that the printing press (or the early photocopier) would be invented, and it was fairly large (like an entire office desk) it's main use was to make many copies of something. I recall in grade 5 we took this trip to Harbor Front Downtown Toronto they showed how they explained how the printing press technique worked and I thought that was fairly neat.
Anyway back on topic, since we've just extremely briefly covered the OLD HISTORY of printing, writing and carving, we can fast forward approximately 4.5 centuries from where we left off from to get to the mid 1800s the time of the invention of the typewriter the first fully semi-automatic typing device this was a huge innovation in printing and just a century after that the worlds first digital printer (the EP-101) was invented and manufactured this and many other similar breakthroughs across the world set the foundations for automatic Printing and 3D printing. All of these printers piled ink on a page to work, even modern ink jet printers do this. Later in 1998 Charles Hull first began the idea of 3D Printing by using a system that could pile layers over layers of a material (at that time only plastic) to create a tangible object just by using a digital design for instructions (WOW). 3D printing grew rapidly, at first only a few years after the discovery they were already printing plastic objects, 10 years after that they were printing metal parts then small organs then ever so sophisticated designs then gigantic printing and so on. Nowadays they have stores that sell these printers and entire websites dedicated to them. What will the reality of 3D printing be in 50 years from now?
HOW WILL IT AFFECT ECONOMY AND OUR SAFETY
Now that we've all went over how limitless, how promising, how real and how rapidly growing this, well printing thing is, we should now consider some reality(also the reason this is in current events) and it is... if people start to print out all the things usually bought from a manufacturer or a store then how will businesses make money? Well lets go through some reasonably realistic possibilities. First of all NASA is already using lazer 3D printers to accurately print out the once complex, boring and time consuming parts of rockets (they even actually created a 3D printer that can function in space) plus they are even planning and are prepared to equip every space crew with their own custom sized 3D Printer that can “print” tools.
Since 3D Printing is super accurate and can very efficient (Like no leftover scarps) it is also used for printing complicated jet engine nozzles (Which with man labor require a 20 piece accurate weld) and many more companies are beginning to use this thing though its still much less than 2% of all manufacturing in the World. It also can work 24/7 (like all other machines) so in other words this might substitute or even (hopefully not) replace manual skilled labor, some clothing(or in other words could create cyber fashion), medical surgery(via organ printing), toys, candy production, manufacturing and some factory equipment, it could also eventually removing the store from the buying phase. Though there some benefits such as easier to start small or personal businesses, creating or manufacturing inventions, Eco green and so on (well go into greater depth on the next slide). Safety is another major issue is um well copyright and safety as you saw in the intro, “almost anything you can imagine people are creating.” the almost meaning there is very little limitations on what you can print people have already printer the magazine or hopper for a gun and bullets what may come next could be bazookas (if you keep it hidden from the government) so that means maybe a few laws would need to be passed on to insure no armed citizen terrorized the streets of Toronto. Now don't have a heart attack traditional manufacturing methods/facilities will always exist (for at least the next century). Examples of what will surely stay include, food produce, brewery, organisms and plants(living plants).
We’ve at how 3D printing is scaling up and all the other different aspects of it but this all boils down into one question, what's yet to come?
