Metalwork_Creatzz_2_edit_2With a readership of 27,850, Metalworking News Asia is the source for the latest updates and news about metal manufacturing practices, machinery and applications. Creatz3D is honoured to be featured in Metalworking News Asia where we discussed about the possibilities of 3D Printing Technology.

Contrary to what is commonly perceived, there are several areas and industries in which 3D Printing Technology can be applied to and they include: Architecture, Aerospace, Animation, Automotive, Commercial Products, Defence, Medical and many more. The uses for 3D Printing Technology are no longer limited to the creation of prototypes and concept models but have also extended to the production of end use parts as well. Aside from that, the range of materials that can be used in the 3D Printing process have also grown substantially and comprise of various types of thermoplastics, photopolymers and metal powders.

As such, the possibilities that can be achieved by 3D Printing are aplenty, along with its potential benefits. Increased design flexibility, better communication, reduced production time and cost, these are just the beginning of the numerous benefits that 3D Printing can bring about. Sean Looi, General Manager of Creatz3D further elaborated about the impact of 3D Printing on the business workflow, stating:

A great advantage of 3D Printing includes mass customization- high mix and low volume. But whether 3D Printing will replace traditional technology for manufacturing, I don’t think so. If you take 3D Printing technology as a substitute technology, you are not making full use of the advances of 3D Printing. You need to look at it from a complimentary point of view: how this technology can affect your entire business process. Because 3D Printing can be used in the entire business process, in manufacturing, production, research and design, marketing and even sales.

Therefore, it is crucial that people who intend to buy a 3D Printer, develop a thorough understanding of the technologies involved and how it will aid them in fulfilling their business aims and objectives. Subsequently, they will then be able to maximize the full potential of 3D Printing Technology and enjoy a more efficient work process.
