2D or not 2D! The answer is 3D! And with the 3D printer, this becomes possible. It all started back when a scientist had an idea that by using plastic in place of the ink, we can construct some big stuff. So the idea took form and the world got the first nightmare for the not-so-eco-friendly corporations that depend on you having to buy stuff from the market. We are talking about the 3D printer of course. But you might ask. How does this printer actually work?
The way a 3D printer works is quite amazing. In case you are wondering what kind of ink does it uses, the answer is plastic. We are not kidding!
The printer has a nozzle that ejects molten plastic in the form of layers. It extrudes one layer and then waits for it to dry before thrusting the next layer. Now the real game is in the controls of the computer, along with the perfect waiting time to craft the model. It can either become like a master-crafted model, or it can look like a completely messed up pile of goo that you will want to throw in rubbish.
With 3D printers, there emerged another brilliant invention. 3D houses! The perfect nightmares for the corporate overlords who would rather have you fighting for mansions made up of bricks and cement than to get a residence printed within a week or two. But on an overall scale, this idea is more eco-friendly. This idea of printing your mansions is attractive and it is evolving at a warp speed. One of the best aspects of these 3D houses is the partnership possibility that construction companies are having with materials technology companies.
Where the normal construction of a house ends up releasing a lot of emissions, printing a 3D house reduces the carbon emissions by 60%. The idea is in the initial phases and although it is a rapidly developing fad, it will soon become common. Another benevolent aspect of this house-making scheme is that it is providing new homes for the homeless. There are charity groups making donations for this noble purpose. The world of 3D printing looks quite ambitious. Coupled with digitalization, this trend can make way to make the world greener and better.
