3D Printing is Changing the World & We Barely Notice!

A lot of us waited for too long before we were able to witness our favorite superheroes in updated costumes with more tricks and ploys under their sleeves. That’s right; I’m most definitely talking about Marvel’s Infinity War! Ever wonder why you find Marvel’s movies so fascinating, is it the good looking avengers or the skills they use to successfully fight off the antagonists in each movie? Perhaps, it is the 3D printing technology Marvel uses in most of its movies to appeal to the eye of the viewers.

3D printing has been around for more than a 30 years now, yet it is not visible to the common man’s eye or one does not seem to pay close attention to the details of their surroundings. 3D printing has been included in one way or the other into the objects we notice in our daily lives. For instance, does your school or office building have a small model of the entire building that people usually gather around when they first visit your premises? Well guess what, it’s probably a 3D model! Do you see how easy it is to grab people’s attention through a mere 3D printer?

3D printing is being used worldwide by small scale business owners as well as large scale entrepreneurs. While Marvel is a big franchise that uses 3D printing to entertain the audience, small scale business owners utilize 3D printing by creating personalized objects for the people such as the phone covers that people are willing to pay a good amount for as long as the cover has their favorite fictional character or song lyric on it. Anything personal that may have seemed to be impossible to possess in the past is now very much possible, all thanks to 3D printing.

3D printing has not only been used to entertain people rather, huge organizations are utilizing this technology to create a bright future for people who may have thought life was over for them when they lost an eye or a limb. You heard it; 3D printing allows organizations to create prototypes and prosthetic limbs as well as other organs to allow people to lead a normal life. Moreover, it is also being used in the education sector to allow young, sharp minds to bring their thoughts to life, to make them tangible.

Clearly, 3D printing has so much to offer to the world but it is a shame that out of so many people, only a few realize the power and opportunities 3D printing presents us with. 3D printing is not something too peculiar for an ordinary man to grasp thus, even if you consider yourself an ordinary individual, you are more than capable of utilizing this technology to your own personal benefits! So, what are you waiting for? Get on the internet whenever you have time to kill and learn a little, take baby steps and who knows, one day you might be making an iron man suit yourself.
