3D Printing is older than you might think. The technology founded in the 1980s is now ruling the world of product development and if you do not know what it is, you are the one to attend IEEE Nepal’s Friday’s event ‘Extrude: 3D Printing and Prototyping.’ 3D Printing is a computerized process of making real physical objects from digital designs. The name ‘3D Printing’ less describe its potential and is often misguiding to the new enthusiasts as it is far distinct from a normal two-dimensional inkjet/laser printer that deposits a single layer of ink on a sheet of plain paper. The later takes a sliced layer of design in a form of g-code and deposits thin layer of plastic (but not limited to plastics) to fuse layers upon another layer exactly as per the model designed in a CAD software. As the machines of these days are well calibrated and work in a resolution of up to 50-micron layer thickness, complexity is free with 3D printing.
Top manufacturing companies and research institutions including General Electric, Boeing and Nike are using additive manufacturing in their product development process as it offers high flexibility during prototyping and reduces both time and cost of production. NASA has already implemented 3D printing in zero gravity space station to address the supply chain problem between earth and space and make spares for rockets/satellites.
The technology which was once only in reach of few hands is now open-source and widely distributed among the most common users in all communities. Educational institutions and engineering students are the one in the top of the pyramid to have best used the technology to turn their imagination into reality. Custom projects/products which would take months to complete can be done in few days as one can make things when and where needed as per requirement, thus completely limiting the time to go out and trying to find hard-to-find spare parts for the project.
Spares and custom parts for engineering projects
3D Printer, in a nutshell, is a ‘mini-factory’ capable of producing almost any item within a day, the application of which are innumerable and depends more on user preferences and community needs.
Zener Technologies, a pioneer in 3D printing in Nepal is helping SMEs and local entrepreneurs prototype their new products. Meet them in person to know more about the technology and its scope in Nepal.
