Ideas 4 3D Printing


We are Looking for Articles Reporting on 3D Print  Technology

 

Many people are surprised by the rapid use of 3D printing projects in educational settings & corporations. The benefits are staggering & promising, the potential side effects need very careful evaluation.

CorePlanner is processing and developing a lesson plan project on the broad topic of 3D Printing, We'll show how our goals and objectives meet the standards in an interdisiplinary manner. From one project, we hope to expand it with the help of interested co-planners :) 

3-D Printing began as a way for architects and car designers to model their products, but has recently become an emerging new technology poised to change everything from manufacturing to retail to medical science.

In just the last year, 3-D printers have produced artificial organs, research tools for scientists, and other ideas previously unimaginable.  As these devices drop in price, rise in capabilities and work their way towards the ubiquity enjoyed by conventional inkjet printers, we decided to take a look back at the 10 most incredible objects ever made with a 3-D printer. http://www.technewsdaily.com/5242-incredible-3d-printed-products.html

 

Airplanes & UAVs

 

Companies such as Concord and Boeing are already using 3-D printing to create certain airplane parts like landing gear brackets, eventually they hope to print much larger parts, including the airplane's wings.

In the meantime, entire unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have already been printed. The SULSA, as the UAV is known, has a wingspan of two meters and can travel at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Because these planes are printed instead of constructed using more conventional techniques, designers can create shapes and structures that would normally involve costly traditional manufacturing techniques.

This technology allows for a highly tailored aircraft to be developed in just a few days. Furthermore, because no tooling is required for manufacture, radical changes to the shape and scale of the aircraft can be made with no extra cost.
