Is it worth buying a 3D printer?

A 3D printer is not a toy, but it is not a machine that makes money automatically. While 3D printers look interesting, they also require a lot of work. It is a great product.

How does a 3D printer work?
The ordinary printers used in daily life can print the plane objects designed by the computer, and the so-called 3D printers work on the same principle as ordinary printers, except that the printing materials are different. The printing materials of ordinary printers are ink and paper, and the 3D printers are filled with metal. Different "printing materials" such as mineral powder, ceramics, plastics, and sand are tangible raw materials. After the printer is connected to the computer, the "printing materials" can be stacked one after another through computer control, and finally the blueprint on the computer is turned into In kind. In layman's terms, a 3D printer is a device that can "print" real 3D objects. It is used to print a robot, print a toy car, print various models, even food, and so on. The reason why it is commonly called "printer" is based on the technical principles of ordinary printers, because the process of segmented processing is very similar to inkjet printing. This printing technology is called 3D stereo printing technology.
There are many different technologies for 3D printing. Their difference lies in the way of available materials and the construction of different layers to create parts. Commonly used materials for 3D printing include nylon fiberglass, durable nylon materials, gypsum materials, aluminum materials, titanium alloys, stainless steel, silver-plated, gold-plated, and rubber materials.
Although 3D printing technology has promoted the development of world technology, it is prohibited in some countries. For example, in 2016, Pakistan banned the import of 3D printers on the grounds that national security was threatened because these printers could be used to make illegal weapons.
What can't be 3D printed?
Certain technologies cannot even produce shapes that 3D printing can produce without problems. This begs the question, which materials cannot be 3D printed? Materials such as wood, cloth, paper, and rock cannot be 3D printed because they burn before being melted and extruded through a nozzle.
Sintavia releases 3D printing powder condensate treatment plan
Environmental protection and sustainable development are the two most important issues in today's society. Therefore, the Additive Manufacturing Green Trade Association (AMGTA) came into being. As one of the founding members, Sintavia has been committed to establishing a new AM "green" standard.
Antarctic Bear was informed that on March 17, 2021, Sintavia, LLC, the designer and 3D printing manufacturer of a new generation of flight and launch components, announced that it has issued a correct handling procedure for powdered condensate waste generated in the powder bed additive manufacturing process Overview. The paper is titled "Overview of Disposal Procedures for Powder Condensate" and was written by Sintavia's Quality and EHS Engineer Ashley Wallace in collaboration with additive manufacturers Green Trade Association (AMGTA) and Triumvirate Environmental.
