3D Printing is Shaping the Future at LUX Manufacturing!
We are very excited to add 3D printing to our manufacturing line-up! 3D printers work like inkjet printers. Instead of ink, 3D printers deposit the desired material in successive layers to create a physical object from a digital file. Almost anything can be created using a 3D printer from medical devices and models, to toys, musical instruments, automotive parts, camera lenses, jewelry, phone cases and card holders.
According to Wohlers Associates, a consultancy, the market for 3D printers and services was worth $2.2 billion worldwide in 2012, up 29% from 2011 and one study has found that open source 3D printing could become a mass market item because domestic 3D printers can offset their capital costs by enabling consumers to avoid costs associated with purchasing common household objects.
