3D printing definitely has had a boom in growth over the past few years. So, what does this mean for jobs? These printers have actually created new jobs and boosted employment in preexisting careers. 3D Design is an all new job that companies will now need. This job requires people that can translate an idea into a product that can be "brought to life." Manufactures now need employees that have this ability due to the rapid impact 3D printers have had on our economy. Thanks to 3D printing, more people will be able to be employed in career paths.
To be a 3D printing designer the required minimum is four years for a Bachelor's degree, and six years of study to receive a Master's degree, which in general is preferable. You should get hands-on experience in 3D technologies and stay-up-to-date on how people are using 3D printing. 3D printing will design careers for 3D designers at 3D printing firms, in companies as part of creative teams, and as independent contractors or consultants.
How does a 3D designer use 3D printing?
The 3D designer will take the object and digitally design it or create a blueprint of it using CAD software or he can actually use a 3D scanner to scan the object in preparation for 3D printing.
