Know 3D Printing Technology Dangers

3D printers is the technology without bounds that is setting down deep roots. Today, wherever you look, you can discover news about the most recent advancements that have come to fruition utilizing a 3D printer. From motorbikes to restorative types of gear and prosthetic appendages and advanced contraptions, individuals have possessed the capacity to make nearly anything out of their creative energy into a workable model or even an undeniable item that is prepared for the market.

# Prominence in Australia

With the innovation developing quickly, and enhancements being made always in 3D printer fiber, it is no big surprise that individuals in Australia, from specialists to business visionaries and industrialists, have wholeheartedly grasped the 3D printing innovation.

# The drawback of the innovation

In any case, much the same as whatever else that is synthetic, 3D printers have turned into a twofold edged sword that is being utilized for a considerable measure of shady things. While it might in any case not be a reasonable innovation for everybody, the abuse of 3D innovation is still across the board and incident since it is accessible advantageously to numerous mechanical houses, designers, software engineers, and other individuals who can stand to purchase the best in 3D printers, so this is something that everybody must know about.

# What are the risks of 3D printing innovation?

One of the most recent situations where 3D printing innovation caught the consideration of the world for all the wrong reasons was the point at which a law understudy set up a video of a weapon he had composed and got printed utilizing a 3D printer. The CAD outline of the weapon was downloaded in the thousands before it was evacuated at the express demand of the Department of Homeland Security in the U.S. In Australia as well, 3D printers are turning out to be progressively prominent and there’s no telling what will be concocted next.

# The other dangers of 3D printers

Apart from a deliberate misuse of the printers to create products which may be harmful for the general populace, there are other dangers to 3D printers that people need to be aware of. Knowing these dangers will give people a more comprehensive idea of how to use 3D printers in a way that is safe for themselves and the environment.

# Some of these dangers are :

-> Printing or buying guns that are made with plastic from 3D printing technology. The danger of this is that they could pass through metal detectors and be used indiscriminately by anyone with an agenda that is not for the highest good of the public. Printing out firearms using a 3D printer just so that licensing requirements can be circumvented is one of the biggest dangers of the technology. It puts guns in the hands of anyone and everyone. All that is needed is to download the CAD design and get it printed either personally or commercially.

-> Printing of safety gadgets or devices using 3D printers that may not hold up to the rigorous standards that are met when the same product is manufactured using metal. For example, printing of helmets and other safety gear using 3D printers can result in danger to the life of the person if the helmet does not hold up in an accident.

-> Printing of products that absolutely need metal to be effective and functional, but using 3D printing technology to make it instead, in order to save on time and money. This is both unethical and illegal.

-> 3D printed drugs are the latest threat to the public due to the misuse of 3D printing technology. Using a chemical blueprint that can be availed from a pharmacy, 3D printers can be used to print out drugs, so that patients can henceforth print out their own drugs! Though this may not be something that is viable in the near future, if it does become possible, then any drug can be printed using it, from cocaine to cyanide, and the implications of this misuse are enormous.

->Printing out food-related items using 3D printers: Anything from a fork to a plate can be printed out this way, but what are the safety and health risks associated with this?

With 3D printing technology, it is easy to go both ways-create as well as destruct, so it is important to be aware at all times and choose wisely.
