3D printing or Additive Manufacturing may well be the next disruptive technology to alter the world. Providing the capability to transform designs into tangible, physical objects it opens up innumerable possibilities. While initially contained to the realm of hobbyists and prototyping applications, 3D printing is now helping make end-use and functional parts.
In Singapore, this technology is all the more relevant. With shortage of space and high labour costs the concept of having urban factories creating custom made, on demand parts makes a lot of sense. No wonder our Government is supporting such initiatives whole-heartedly. Learning and getting started with 3D Printing is not very difficult as shown in this infographic by 3D Bots.
Access to this technology is easily available to everyone having an aptitude for it. For more details, read the full post on how to get started with 3D Printing. Try out 3D printing…you’ll be amazed with how easy it is to make things from designs you had dreamt of!
