Prototyping is a common use for 3D printing technology. These printers can provide designers with easy access to models. They can use these to cheaply test their ideas without going through an expensive hassle. There are other creative ways that 3D printing is innovating our technology such as confectionery uses. UK scientists have created a 3D chocolate printer. All you have to do is melt some chocolate, pour it into a syringe that is inside the printer, and then print whatever your imagination can think of. Other companies around the world are trying to develop similar printers. You can now even print a car, bones, drugs and medicine, and personalized toys and gifts.
3D printing is also assisting the jewelry industry. Now, lots of jewelry designers have begun to make detailed designs out of substances including titanium and plastic. When the technology advances further, people should be able to create their own ideas for jewelry. This provides very good potential for promise and wedding rings.
3D printers are also broadening the world of toys and personalized gifts. Have you ever wanted to be your favorite wrestler or superhero? A couple of online toy industries are currently using 3D printing to create action figures that contain the facial feature of the buyer, based on the pictures the consumer send. Disney is also in on the scoop. At their Hollywood Studios, they are giving permission to Star Wars enthusiasts to enter a booth where there will be cameras that lay out their features. This will allow their appearance to be "carbonised" in 3D like Han Solo was in The Empire Strikes Back. If you happen to not be in the Star Wars fandom, all this means is that mini statues of themselves can be printed out.
