3D Printing capabilities are rapidly expanding, with endless possibilities of incorporating this technology using a variety of materials, including nylon, sugar and even human cells. Every aspect of human life can be affected; just look at the opportunities for 3D printing in our lives.
Object : Clothing / Material Used : TPU 92A-1
Object : Jewelry / Material Used : Nylon
Object : Running Shoes / Material Used : Nylon Poly-amide Powder
Object : Bionic Ear / Material Used : Calf Cells, Polymer Gel, Silver Nano-particles
The normal range of hearing is 20 Hz to 20 kHz, but the bionic ear can increase that range up to 5 GHz.
Object : Internal Organs / Material Used : Bio-Ink
Object : Skin Grafts / Material Used : Skin Cells, Polymers
Object : Prosthetic Limb / Material Used : Choice : Polymer, Metals, Plastic

The Future of Food -> Powder –> Water + Oil –>
In the future, food may be printed from mixing protein and carbohydrate powder with water and oil.
Object : Building/Structure / Material Used : PLA (Bioplastic)
Object : Decorative Outdoor curtain / Material Used : ABS (Thermoplastic)
Object : Planters / Material Used : Concentrate
Object : Fuel Injector Parts / Material Used : Metallic Powder
Object : Motorcycle Shell / Material Used : Windform XT
Object : Cell Phone Display / Material Used : Graphene
Graphene is an ultra thin, transparent, flexible and also a electrically conductive material that is 200 times stronger than structural steel.
3d printing can drastically alter the production and accessibility of life’s necessities. With new materials being introduced every day, how will this evolving printing technology influence future generations and life as we know it?
