Showing up at someone’s doorsteps bearing gifts is an age old phenomenon which never really lost its glamour. This whole gathering which, earlier was limited to a rather show of affection and gratitude, has evolved into a gathering where an individual or a group of individuals gets inherently linked up to such ceremonies, and so does the gifts. These gifts are overtly personified, which has created a niche market for personalized gifts on a global scale.
Creating Personalised Birthday Gifts: A Fusion of Technology and Craftsmanship
Birthdays in particular, have turned out to be a great event which is economical at best, yet draws out everyone from their shell of routine life. However, scouting for personalised Birthday Gifts for such occasions routinely becomes a nightmare for the guests. Birthdays are one fine example of how an occasion can be personified, which lead to the need for creating a whole new segment of overtly personified range of products suited to almost any occasions being observed in form of 3D printing.
3D printing, also recognized as preservative manufacturing Birthday Gifts, in short ‘AM’, is a process used to manufacture a three dimensional objective in which consecutive layers of materials are designed under computer control, i.e. CAM(Computer Aided Manufacturing) to produce an object. Objects of almost any figure or geometry can be created from digital model data or entering different data in a software. Early additive manufacturing equipment and materials were developed in the 1980s and by the early 2010s, the terms 3D printing and additive work evolved and one being used in popular by consumer-maker communities.
As the times goes one came to understand that it is easier to made a 3D model, layer by layer into a desired shape, which is far easier from cutting and shaping the hard metal bodies. The main reflections in choosing the machine are usually speed, costs of the 3D printer, excellent and cost of the materials, and colour capabilities. There are so many technologies are used, like FDM (Fused deposition modelling), DLP (Digital Light Processing), EBF (Electron beam freeform fabrication) etc. It has applications in product development, rapid prototyping, data visualization and specialized manufacturing.
There are many applications for AM technologies, like construction (AEC), including architecture, industrial design, aerospace, engineering, automotive, military, dental and medical industries, fashion, footwear, jewellery, eyewear, education and many other fields.
A three dimensionally printed model has the following qualities:
- Long lasting
- Eye catchy designs
- Light in weight
