“Highlights of some amazing 3D Printed Projects in 2019”

The 3D printing technology allows any kind of design to be brought to life which releases architects from the limitations of standard construction.

3D printing or additive manufacturing is way of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital life. The creation or making of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes and in this process, an object is made by laying down successive layers of material till the object is created. Each of these layers can be visible as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object. So basically 3D printing is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing which is cutting out a piece of metal or plastic with for specimen a milling machine.

SketchUp is just made for 3D printing and designing in SketchUp is cool as 3D printing is something that moves is cooler and unique than that. In this article we are going to discuss about a few features that can be include by the users to make their creations more than just interestingly shaped hunks of immobile plastic. Aidan Chopra and Rebecca Huehls this time comes up with new tricks about 3D printing in SketchUp.

SketchUp or Google SketchUp is owned by Trimble Inc., a mapping, surveying and navigation company. It is mainly a 3D modeling computer program that is used for a broad range of drawing applications used by architects, interior designer, landscape architects, civil and mechanical engineers, film and video game designers also.

3D printing technology has changed many industries globally and among them most impact can be seen on Construction industry which offers freedom and versatility in a right budget. This article will describe four new 3D Printed projects in 2019 among Construction industry.

Most of the companies that use 3D printed program in construction are startups businesses are still in their developing phase though the number of countries using 3D technology is growing every day. Dubai is the leader of those countries where the most famous and luxurious UAE city has started a new structure that will be going to be built by using 3D technology.

  • Project Milestone: This is based in Eindhoven (the Netherlands), the engineers of Netherlands are planning to build five 3D printed concrete homes; this unique project makes them the first commercial housing project using 3D technology. Where the homes will be of new ages, having all kind of comforts etc.
  • Apis Cor: It is a startup which is located in San Francisco made a demonstration of its own 3D technology by creating a house in Stupino, Russia in 2016. Their technology is versatile and mobile as they printed the whole home on site to cut the transport expense. In future they are expecting to make homes using dual extrusion that will allow printing components other than the concrete structure. Recently the company has collaborated with SEArch+ and entered the “3D Printed Habitat Challenge”, a contest organized by NASA.
  • New Story: It is a nonprofit located in Texas who has partnered with Icon which is a company that creates printers, robotics and advanced materials to work on affordable housing solutions.
  • WinSun: WinSun created its first houses in 2013 using the first continuous 3D printer; they used a special mixture made of sand, cement and fibre along with suitable additions to print house components layer by layer in their Suzhou factory in China.

Handy Potter, gesture-based 3-D modeling software to make 3d shapes with hand motion

Purdue University developed Handy Potter, a hand-free, gesture-based 3-D modeling software, that can produce digital models or 3d shapes as well as express any ideas instantly through natural hand movements devoid of applying a mouse. The 3d design can be printed on a 3d printer. This newest 3d modeling app will be marketed by Zero UI, a Cupertino, California-based company having expertize in 3D modeling technology.

This latest 3d technology can be useful in the field of games, architecture, art and engineering design.

With Handy Potter, one can generate various digital models like drums, tables, lamps and other items on a computer.

This 3d modeling program follows a modeling scheme dubbed intelligent generalized cylinders (IGC) system.

Handy Potter can replace the backdated computer-aided design tools used for making geometric shapes through a depth-sensing camera with sophisticated software algorithms to understand hand motions and gestures.
