WHY 3D PRINTING TECHNOLOGY IS NOT SO MUCH SUCCEEDED?

We have discussed in our previous post about the “Basic of 3D printing technology” and we have also seen the various 3D techniques and as well as 3D materials used in industries in our last post i.e. “3D printing technology”. We have also studied “importance of recycling of materials for 3D printing” in our previous post.

Now we will consider here, why 3D printing technology is not so much succeeded?

Let us discuss that why 3D printing technology by recycling of material is not so much succeeding in current period.

Customer demand for three dimensional printing techniques could enhance only if the price of 3D printing system may reduce. In current situation 3D printing system having price not more than 1000 dollar normally use a kit of DIY style and it need machine assembly itself and must be noted that they, normally, will not replicate CAD design correctly. But when three dimensional technologies are used with recycled materials then price of 3D printing technology will be reduced.

There will be printrbot 3d printing system with cost approximate 299 dollars will be the best option to use as it will be under comfortable but must be noted that as it is very simple and basic hence high quality object or product could not be printed .But if we go ahead for some standard 3d printing system then cost will be increased. 

For example Cubify cube is the best one 3d printing system with cost of 1300 dollars and it also connect with wi -fi network.

In the sector of prototyping of product-development, three dimensional printing techniques is admired because of  being a fast and efficient way for creating object for testing efficiency before the said object goes for manufacturing step in the product development. 

Even three dimension printing technology is a feasible technique in terms of confirming components and also assuring that is no need of  engineering and design tease before providing green signal for production for any product, there are some deficiency in application of using this 3D printing technology .
 
The big question is that we have to understand this technique is viable for long turn or for short run manufacturing.

Limitation of materials

As we know that three dimensional technologies i.e. 3D printed components are made in additive way or we may say that it’s layer by layer from ground. While in this 3D printing technology, materials are in limited situation for this three dimensional technology, if we think in serious way we have one option of using plastic, as it has ability to be accumulated down in the form of melted layers in order to secure the final part. 

As this is the best option to use in 3D printing technology and it is recyclable. Plastic material that we will use in this application will have good strength and high temperature resistant. Metal can also be used in these applications and gold and glass could also be used in this technology.

Questionable Accuracy

3 D printing technology is basically a technology for prototyping, that means components or parts manufactured with the help of this technology are mainly components of testing. As in case of any feasible test component, the specification will have to be precised so that engineers will have ability to secure the correct reading to understand weather the part is feasible or not. 

While in case of 3 D technology, there is various advanced system to secure accurate reading and in last few years there is possibility of securing reading with error of + - 0.1 mm hence accuracy is questionable in this technique. 

Limitation in manufacturing 

3D printing technology is suitable for producing prototype components because of its suitable accuracy and inexpensive process of producing one run parts and which we do not need to prepare tooling. Component might be prepared in few hours and amendment could be done in the engineering and design of the component with the help of design software such as computer aided design CAD file and then components could be investigated. 

But if we consider manufacturing point of view, three dimensional technique i .e 3D printing is not a suitable option. In process of manufacturing for example stamping and thermo forming, some components are normally prepared only in one minute and not require hours.

Size

Components created normally via three dimensional techniques are limited in dimensions or size also. For example, the most economical and common three dimensional 3D printing machines are having small in size to fit on our desktop, or we may say that they have made chamber sizes of equally proportions. 

There are some 3D printers those have ability to produce larger component, but must be noted that these type of 3D printer will require money and hence the selection of such 3D printer is not ethical for lot of organizations.

In our next post we will study one Literature review over the concept of 3 D printing with recycled materials.


We will also discuss some very important points in our next post i.e. “Report on 3D printing technology” as mentioned below.
  1. History of three dimensional or 3D printing technologies
  2. Application of recycled materials in 3 D printing
  3. Development of three dimensional (3D) printing
  4. Negative impact of 3D printer with recycled materials
  5. General questions about 3D printing technology
