3D print is remoulding our lives
The world's first commercial housing project based on 3D-concrete printing is underway in Netherlands. Companies around the world have already proven that not only can a large-scale projects be 3D-printed, it can be done cheaply, efficiently and easily. The technology is moving beyond plastic prototypes to everyday industrial use. Here are a few ways the 3D printing is transforming the way we live
A team of surgeons from Medanta: The Medicity, Gurugram, last year successfully implanted a 3D-printed vertebra in a 32-year-old woman — helping her walk again after a bout of disabling spinal tuberculosis.The 10-hour-long surgery was the first-of-its-kind for reconstruction with a 3D-printed titanium implant in India, and third in the world. Although in a nascent stage, market intelligence solutions firm 6Wresearch predicts that India's 3D printer prototyping and materials market will hit $79 million by 2021.
