3D Printing Hits the Peak of the Gartner Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies

3D Printing Hits the Peak of the Gartner Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

The Gartner Hype Cycle graphic has been used since 1995 to highlight the common pattern of overenthusiasm, disillusionment and eventual realism that accompanies each new technology and innovation. The Hype Cycle Special Report is released annually to track 'emerging' technologies along this cycle and provide guidance on when organizations should adopt them for maximum impact and value. 3D Printing has been steadily climbing to the peak of 'Inflated Expectations' over the past few years and now sits on top, poised for the drop into the 'Trough of Disillusionment, or is it.

3D Printer Uses Paper, Not Ink

3D Printer Uses Paper, Not Ink | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

The Matrix 3D builds an object one paper sheet at a time. It interleaves sheets  of everyday office paper with layers of an adhesive that binds them. As the  object rises up from the print surface (it takes ten sheets of paper to build up  one millimeter of the finished object), tungsten carbide blades sculpt away  excess paperThe Matrix 3D creates 3d models by binding sheets of paper using a water-based adhesive and then cutting away the excess paper on each layer.

Some say that 3D printing is not useful for manufacturing due to the per unit cost of printing versus traditional mass manufacturing. That's true, and so 3D printing is often used for prototypes and low-quantity production.
