General Benefits of 3D Printing

3D printing has become an enormously beneficial method of making smaller, often intricate products and pieces of equipment across many industries. The ability to utilize this new way to manufacture certain objects greatly reduces production time and often allows manufacturers to be more creative thanks to the adaptability of 3D printing machines and the materials they can use.
Quickly creating lightweight parts, customizing pieces, and the great potential for biocompatibility in medical applications have made 3D printing a vital innovation.

Examples of 3D Printing

Just a few example of industries that now commonly make use of lightweight, 3D-printed parts are:

  • Non-critical structural components in airplanes
  • Prototyping and testing in automobiles
  • Prosthetics and implants in human patients
  • Consumer electronics and gadgets.

Of course, these are just a few examples of current uses. This list does not mention the many interesting and exciting new ways that many individuals and start-up organizations are using 3D printing to grow and develop.

Why Rilsan?

What makes Rilsan one of the best materials in 3D printing? First, Rilsan has ideal processing characteristics. It can be easily cut and shaped by the lasers used in 3D printers, which means that it can be designed in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and patterns from perfectly simple to extremely complex and detailed.

Adding to this is a high elasticity, which means that even when re-shaped and designed it will remain strong. Rilsan is also durable and can offer a fully matte finish. Along with all of this, it is a completely renewable, eco-friendly material.

Taking all of these qualities into account and combining them with the speed and versatility of 3D printing processes makes it obvious why they pair so well. Easy processing and flexibility without sacrificing strength or durability are ideal benefits in almost any industry, especially when it comes to smaller, specialized parts.
