3D Printing Touching Lives in so many ways from Replacement body parts to Affordable house
3DPrinting 3Dhome.org - The first permitted, 3D-printed home created specifically for the developing world was unveiled today in Austin, Texas by New Story, the non-profit working to create a world where no human being lives in survival mode, and ICON, the newly launched construction technologies company leading the way into the future of homebuilding by using 3D printing to make major advancements in affordability, building performance, sustainability and customizability.
3D printing is one of the fastest growing technologies of the past few years, because businesses and consumers are quickly discovering the practical applications. In particular, 3D printers have been used in the manufacturing industry to quickly create prototypes, and they are now being used in the medical field. In March 2016, the FDA approved the first-ever 3D printed drug, which relies on3D printing to create a more dissolvable pill. Prosthetic devices and implants are also being created with 3Dprinting technology so patients receive a more precise fit.
Currently, 3D printers are only subject to regulations that extend to the manufacturing sector as a whole. The rising use of 3Dprinting in the medical field may necessitate more stringent compliance with the FDA as it becomes a health concern. Similarly, legislation regarding the 3D printing of weapons is also increasing. In July 2016, California passed a law that would require makers of 3D printed guns and other homemade firearms to apply for an official serial number from the Department of Justice.
