3D Printers

Saving Lives

3D printing is making houses and organs. With the 3D printer we will be able to live to 100-110 years old easily because it can make organs, hearts, kidneys, and much more. For example, newborn named Kaiba Gionfriddo. He was born prematurely. Then after 6 weeks he stopped breathing. He was saved and put on a ventilator. He would stop breathing daily. Then people gave him a 3D printed a bioresorbable (a material that can be broken down by the body). The device instantly saved him.

Chuck Hull

Chuck Hull is the farther of the 3D printer. In 1983 he created the 3D printe. Then in 1986 he got a patent for it. Hull predicted it would take 15-20 years for the 3D printer to get into the household. He was correct. The 3D printer is starting to find its way into peoples houses.

We could also make many products, meaning we don't have to go to china and other countries in Asia to help us. Instead of having to go out and purchase parts you can just print them. It will save time and money which is huge. They could also make house prices more affordable and making houses would be more eco-friendly and there would be zero-waste. Prosthetic's would become more affordable. They could now be priced at under $100. The 3D printer could save lives in space. In case of an emergency they could use the 3D printer to make parts they need to survive. The 3D printer will help reduce plastic waste. All the plastic we throw out poses a threat to the environment. But you could actually recycle these parts into the 3d printer filaments. The 3D printer could show all the art. Most museums can’t show a lot of their sculptures because they are too fragile. They could scan it into a 3D printer in which could could show all their art. The public would be able to get close and touch it, so they could educate people about ancient art.
