In a world where everyday technology becomes better it is hard to believe that there are still things happening that are improving things even more. The newest form of technology that is surprising the world in today’s market is that of 3D printing.
What Is 3D Printing
When you are speaking of printing most people think of print actually being attached to paper. However with 3D printing this allows for you to actually design or create an object on the computer. Once the document is created you can then connect the computer to a device, which is similar to a printer, and transfer it to a special type of material. Usually the special type of material is plastic but even ink and regular paper will work.
Costs Of 3D Printing
The world of 3D printing is about to take off and expand even further due to the fact that the machinery is at large levels. This will help to increase the world of manufacturing and help to increase the global economy. Many think that the 3D printing world will be one of the largest attributes to the world of printing that has yet to happen. However many will argue the fact that this type of technology will be dangerous to the world because a terrorist could do tremendous damage with this kind of advanced technology.
Benefits Of 3D Printing
The benefits of 3D printing definitely out weight the disadvantages. Therefore it makes it very difficult for different countries and nations to turn down the type of technology being offered with 3D printing. In fact it has been said that it could be economic suicide to turn it down or ban the technology.
This new type of technology will also challenge the traditional way of mass-producing manufactured products. Unfortunately this has already happened in the service portion of the world as well as the digital work and social media such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. There is decentralization when it comes to authors and music artists trying to sell the works to the public. Most of this is not done of the computer and through wireless technology. Of course mistakes will still happen and everyone in the technology world will learn from those mistakes. Such lessons were also learned during the Industrial Revolution.
Present Day Manufacturing
When you are producing a product in today’s market that are identical it makes sense to produce them in large quantities in a location that is not expensive to produce in. China is a good example of one of these locations. You can then ship the items in large quantities to other places or even have people purchase the items from you online when the items are needed. This will keep the costs down and inventory up however you will still be maintaining a lucrative business.
Your Own Manufacturing
A 3D printer is not something that is expensive and unaffordable for the everyday person. Therefore it is becoming more common to have do it yourself projects that can be down easily and with little instruction all with the 3D printer you purchase for a couple of thousand dollars. Eventually we will see the costs of these printers drop even more and more people will be making their own products.
Today’s technology advances are allowing for the price of production of a mass number of items to be pretty inexpensive. However the price of a 3D printer is also reasonable and will continue to decrease over time therefore becoming more and more popular everyday. Soon these types of manufacturing will take over not only mass production but the government as well.
