Example text

Objet’s printer, for instance, was used to create the armor that fit Robert Downey Jr. like a glove in the Iron Man movies. Also, the Objet printer allowed the effects team for the blockbuster Prometheus to quickly produce and custom-fit the film’s bubble-like spacesuit helmets for a variety of actors, including Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender. Granular Another technique, popular for plastics, metals, and even ceramics, relies on the use of a granular powder. This technology has been used to create large objects from James Bond’s car in Skyfall to flexible artwork like the 3D-printed full dress worn by model Dita von Teese.

Plastic-powder objects remain granular and so can be easily crushed unless dipped into resin to fill the spaces between the granules. For metal and glass casting, the resulting “solid” shapes are stabilized by heating them to fuse the binder and powder, or when using simple metal powder by infusing the powder-binder mixture with additional liquid metals (such as bronze) to create a stronger alloy or more pleasing appearance. This is popular for jewelry making, where precious metals like gold and silver are too expensive to keep in granular form to fill the powder bed.

By creating the part in lightweight and inexpensive plastic, its fit can be tested and further adjustments made before a final object is created in material desired. The amazing potential of this new type of parts management is that manufacturers would no longer need to store copies of all possible parts in warehouses and other locations. Instead, they would simply download the appropriate component design and print out its replacement when needed. Instead of days or weeks until the proper replacement can be shipped to your local dealership, you could call up the mechanic to schedule a recall item replacement, and they would print out the part to have ready when you arrived on your way home.
