Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video What you can make with 3D printing, part of Up and Running with 3D Printing.
…One of the most common questions about 3D printing is,…what can I make or what is this technology good for?…And uses run the gamut from prototyping to final products of all kinds, in this…video we'll take a look at some of the most prevalent uses of 3D printing.…3D printing originated as a prototype in technology.…A prototype is a preliminary physical representation…of a design in progress.…Traditional techniques include sculpting in clay…or machining in metal, casting and more.…
And while these are useful, they can be really time-consuming.…3D printing is a lot faster.…And it's often called rapid prototyping.…Inventors, designers, and engineers can make a physical copy…of their design in hours, instead of weeks or days.…And this really speeds…up the innovation process, especially in product design.…3D printing is useful in any industry that already has a digital workflow.…Whether it's a digital artist creating a 3D animated…character, or an architect designing a skyscraper, there's only…a few more steps required to translate those existing…
