Home / Blog / 3D Printing / 3D Printing – Competitor Patent Landscape Analysis

The way new technologies and innovations are streamlining existing processes and giving rise to new processes is beyond amazing. 3D Printing is one such technology that has left a revolutionizing impact on our lifestyle.

3D Printing is a process that includes laying down the layers of thin material to synthesize or create a physical object from a 3D digital model. This technology was first introduced in the 1980s with the name Rapid Prototyping Technologies as it was used for creating prototypes for product development in different industries. Later, this technology evolved as 3D printing and became widely applicable in several areas:

Human Body Organ Printing – to print organs from individual patients’ cells, so that in the future, patients no longer have to wait for donors.

Automotive Industries – for prototyping different parts of a vehicle and then assembling them into a single unit.

Aerospace Industry – for creating prototypes for aircraft wings, complex engine parts, on-demand parts in space, etc.

Architecture – to create attractive and durable models for the conception and promotion of the architecture and construction industry.
