Over the years, American technology has come a long way. It is evolving faster than most people can keep up with it. Advanced technology has brought us such things as slim, flat televisions, pocket-sized cell phones and electronic devices, e-book readers, energy efficient automobiles, and so many other creations. Now we are even beginning to see advances in the ways that 3D printing can be used.
3D printing and scanning are often used by scientists such as anthropologists to replicate human bones in order to study them more closely. In many cases, the ability to use 3D printing in this way has resulted in major discoveries about ancient beings and it has even been used to solve crimes and put criminals behind bars.
Medical doctors and researchers have figured out how to use 3D printing for uses in surgeries and to figure out ways to improve medical techniques. The use of 3D printing may even allow for the replication of organic tissues in the near future.
Oddly enough, 3D printing has even been used within the culinary field to come up with new and faster ways to distribute food; although, this new discovery used 3D printing in a whole new way. The discovery was made by a student who used different parts from 3D printers in order to create a way to easily make burritos on the go.
More and more 3D technologies are being discovered because more people are using 3D printing in their field of work due the recent decreases in costs of 3D printers and scanners. Many of the designs and creations that have come to light recently have been because of this new technology. Not only has it been used to improve already finished designs, but it has been used to create entirely new innovative designs from scratch.
As time goes on, 3D printing will only become an even larger part of bringing new ideas to life. With the speed at which technology advances, it is only a matter of time before every regular household is able to use 3D printing in their own homes for any number of purposes.
