So apparently 3D printers are becoming a rather big deal.
I attended the 3D print show in London and saw some interesting applications for 3D printing.
I saw some amazing applications for 3D printing in the medical field, things like custom fit casts and even “bio 3D printing”. Using 3D printers for medical purposes is something I think we will only see more of.
3D printed designs for the fashion industry, crazy outlandish shapes, that were printed and are wearable.
These feathers which were some kind of shoulder mount, were really beautifully printed.
One of the most extraordinary things I saw was that this company was printing wood.. yes I said wood! Though I’m sceptical of its integrity that is a very interesting and new way of producing complex wooden shapes.
I had a really good time here I liked seeing some of the ways 3D printing can be used in industries such as film, special effects and medicine. I think this is early days and the things we will be able to print in our own homes will only get better.
