3D Printing Technology is making waves, breaking new grounds and raising the bars all over the world. This happened since the first invention on 3D Printing was made in the 1970s. Today, all the major sectors including education, engineering, architecture, and even the fashion industries are tapping into the world of 3D Technology.
In the education sector, 3D printer is particularly a powerful teaching tool in classrooms for students in various courses such as physics, chemistry, and engineering by allowing them to develop real-world skills.
In the Engineering sector, it is majorly used for the printing of machine prototypes helping out in producing a scaled replica of innovative productions or fabrications.
Architects also make use of it for building structure prototypes replacing the use of the manual way, making use of straw boards, cardboards, paper boards, etc, at a better surface finish, and at a faster rate.
Fashion outlets use it for 3D cloths and bags design; Doctors use it to print important organs of the body needed for operations. And now, we are highlighting the 3D Food Printing.
3D printed food is a way of preparing a meal in an automated additive manner. For example, the 3D printed pizza above has a dough base that is extruded line-by-line by a food 3D printer. A tomato sauce is also applied using the same food 3D Printer.
