Art has no limits.
People in the modern era come up with exceptional talents encompassing a breakthrough in stereotypes and serve innovative ideas. This brings 3D printing to light.
3-D printing involves the construction of a three-dimensional object from a CAD model or a digital 3D model where layers of material are built up to create a 3D part.
Taking into light the vision of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, an initiative of 3D printing Strategic Alliance was formed to create a broad network of government entities, academia, encompassing 3D printing companies in the UAE and the world.
The alliance aims at providing a platform to unite all stakeholders working in the sector to accelerate the adoption and use of technology to support all governmental, economic, health and scientific industries.
Speaking of this alliance, let’s discuss the advantages of 3D printing Dubai.
Flexibility of design
This is the top-notch advantage that 3D printing can offer in the modern era. With the use of technology 3D printing allows the printing of complex designs easily as compared to traditional manufacturing process.
Apart from this, the traditional process of manufacturing a 3D print being design restricted, displayed hinderance in productivity but, with technological advancement production has taken pace and has become comparatively easy to produce desired results.
Reduces human work
Reinforcement of technology has always taken care of reducing labour. Using 3D printing technology has a significant impact on the reduction of labour implying to solve the labour shortage problem.
A shortage in labour can prove to be a hinderance in an organizational setting, especially for countries where construction is heavily dependent on immigrant workers.
Ensure time feasibility
Earlier the traditionally done manual work took atleast 15 days to produce 3D prints. Incorporating technology has helped cut labour costs by more than 50% and ensures the feasibility of time. With the help of a 3D printing model, you can produce results from about 30 minutes to twelve hours in total.
Printing time may range due to a variety of factors like the overall size and geometry of the model but, it ensures a whole production line that can be adjusted and adapted as per the speed of the printing production.
Efficiency of energy
A 3D printer on average consumes 120-300 watts of energy per hour. It is thus an energy-efficient process as compared to machining or casting. It ensures the use of less energy to create products especially when production includes merging parts.
Furthermore, 3D printers also use less material than traditional manufacturing which makes it an environment-friendly process allowing the product to be created effectively by neither wasting the material nor using it excessively.
Cut costs and provide sustainability
3D printing helps cut costs and saves money over hard tooling in producing minimum viable products thus making it the most effective in cases of prototyping. Incorporation of 3D printing technology also helps eliminate material costs through the use of light weighting strategies, reducing material used in a part.
It in turn helps save cost on the inventory by reinforcing digital inventories that allows a product to exist virtually instead of stocking physical space with a costly surplus. Considering all these factors puts up 3D printing in a sphere of sustainability as it ensures less waste material during the product manufacturing process.
