Making 3D printers now child\'s play | India News - Times of India
Angad Daryani, 15year- Old residents in Mumbai find it difficult to convince his father to give up the Rs one lakh needed to buy the ready-madeto-use 3D printer. So he decided to do it himself. \"In the end, I can do half of it,\" Daryani said, who now plans to sell the printer he assembled, which can use three- Size digital model, below Rs 20,000 He claimed the price was the cheapest in the country. Daryani is the youngest Indian to make 3D printers at home, representing more and more Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Enthusiasts who assemble their own machines. Many of them are enthusiasts and creators who can\'t sit still unless they do something. Karan chapeliar, another Mumbaikar, built his first 3D printer almost three years ago after he made the first robot. \"I\'m looking for something exciting and stumbled across the world of 3D printers,\" 24-year- Loyal fans of Star Wars Not surprisingly, the first thing that came out of his printer was a statue of Yoda with trademark pointed ears and concerns -- Fine lines on white plastic. When the printer squirts a molded plastic ring, it may be exciting to watch the 3D model slowly \"resurrect. But how hard is it to assemble a 3D printer? \"Most Popular DIY desktop 3D printers are designed based on open source, such as RepRap, which is easy to use. In fact, this technique allows any class 12 student to assemble and make it work within 48 hours. Rakesh Shishodia of 3D printing said he regularly organizes workshops to introduce 3D printing to home users. The emergence of a vibrant \"3d Maker\" community on the Web has also helped. Resources are everywhere on the Internet From the 3D model site to the open source developer forum \"There is a regular exchange of information and updates,\" said chaperoar . \". As for the printer components, some of them are imported, and quite a few are available locally now. \"The beauty of the open source 3D printer is that it can also print its own parts. It\'s a self- Copy the machine. In a sense, we can print a new printer from an existing printer in a few hours, \"said another passionate DIYer Asil Rohit, he won the competition at the manapal Institute of Technology to make affordable 3D printers. The 19-year- Old starts running now- In the two months since its launch, the company has sold nearly 10 assembled printers. Observers say the growing DIYers tribe is likely to start the so-called desktop 3D printer revolution. \"This is very similar to how enthusiasts assembled desktop PCs decades ago. Just like computers have completely changed the way we work, it is also possible to change the way we create products in the future, \"said Zalak Shah, research assistant at Gartner India, a technology research firm. However, it is too early. While industrial 3D printers have begun to impose restrictions on the types of products they can create -- From aircraft components to human tissue The field of desktop DIY printers is still developing. The products being produced by DIYers are currently limited to toys, souvenirs, personalized smartphone housing, faux jewelry, etc. , and occasionally experiment with printing chewing gum, almost edible food. On the horizon, however, is a new area where they can play a more utilitarian role. Waste management is an interesting application. \"There is a chance that home 3D printers can trigger a recycling revolution in this country,\" Rohit said . \". \"We\'re thinking about a scene where, a few years later, instead of throwing an used Coke can into the bin, you throw it into the printer, and voila, it turns into something as useful as a tableware. Another obvious area is education. Operating Nikhil Velpanur in Bangalore Printing of 3D models may soon become an integral part of teaching. \"Imagine if a child is able to take a 3D print of a molecule and see how it is formed, then how easy she is to relate to a subject like chemistry. As 3D printing becomes more and more practical and applied in daily life, The possibility of printing generic drugs and fine food at home with a 3D printer is touted as a reality in a few years -- The cost of desktop 3D printers is expected to decline. This may affect DIYers in the long run. \"Currently, it\'s much cheaper to make your own 3D printer than to buy an offline printer The first shelf, \"said Shishodia. \"But as new players enter the market and prices fall, the DIY market will decrease. However, it will take at least a few years. . Until then, DIYers will continue to expand the market. \"Download The Times of India news app for the latest Indian News.
