3D Printing: The Next Big Thing in the Internet of Things
What would the future look like if the rapidly changing industries of the IoT and 3D technology were to bind together?
Dec 30, 2018—
Since the beginning of time, mankind has been focused on how to reduce human labor and how to upgrade life activities by developing survival tools. No wonder that today, every industry across the globe craves for automation and machine learning. Rapid technological advancements have enabled us to use effective tools that can minimize human work, as well as error.
Today, the Internet of Things (IoT) has become the norm. In the past, we used to control machines manually. For instance, if we wanted to use a water heater, we used to plan and schedule the time to turn off the switch. However, thanks to the advent of the IoT, we can control the "on" and "off" switches remotely with the help of nothing but a smartphone or a voice-controlled device. However, the incorporation of 3D technology in the IoT has given rise to a whole new disruptive era, and the opportunities are endless.
During the last few years, several engineers have adopted 3D printing in manufacturing IoT devices, even though the technology is still in its infancy. The benefits of 3D printing, such as flexibility in developing various models in different scales, materials and colors, are the major drivers for the market players to include 3D technology in the IoT.
