With the falling prices, 3D printers made a difference to verticals across the spectrum as they began to lap it up to enhance various applications. Producing everything from human organ replacement to printing footwear and even chocolates, AM’s applications are vast and are increasingly entering previously unexplored segments.
Although the AM boundary is limitless, as a technology it has gained recognition and has began to be taken seriously because of its ability to print human organs with accuracy. Apart from its medical application, the fact that it lends itself to large-scale industrial applications with its rapid prototyping applications is another reason for its acceptance. It helps improve efficiencies in the logistics chain by doing simulated versions of the original, create lightweight products and lowers production costs.
