3D printing technology is the "key" of technology for the future that any business, any manufacturing industry and any country must pay special attention to.

 1. What is 3D printing technology?

Conceptually, in a simple and easy to understand way, 3D printing technology is the process of creating physical models (real models) from digitized models (3D design files on the computer) automatically through machines. 3D printing. 3D printing is to print out the content on each layer, the layers are printed in succession, layer by layer, these layers are bonded together by ink. Ink is the material of a 3D object, be it plastic, paper, powder, polymer, or metal...

2. When did 3D printing technology start?

– From 80s to 1994 started with the patent on Stereolithography Apparatus (SLA), commercialized by 3Dsystems Company (USA)

– From 1994-1997, RPM technical equipment and technology developed towards perfecting the structure, techniques and methods of this technology.

– From 1997 to present, 3D printing technology has developed strongly and has been deployed in many countries around the world.

3. 3D printing technology in Vietnam

3D printing technology in Vietnam has been around since 2003, but due to its high cost, it has not been widely applied, mainly used in research. Currently, this technology has been applied more commonly in many fields from architecture, construction, fashion, fine arts, medicine, cosmetology, education to manufacturing industries...


  • Producing products for mass sale:

3D printers can produce products in large quantities according to customer requirements. Commercial products are widely used in the market such as control boxes, available KITs, sliding mechanisms, ...

  • 3D printing prototyping service with competitive price:

Infrequent customers who have 3D printing needs will often use 3D printing services to improve the quality of their work. Especially for customers who do not have expertise in fields such as advertising, fine arts, making cases for speakers, cabinets, etc., using this service will help them save time.

  • Application in the process of creating new product samples:

Support in the process of creating new product models is considered an outstanding advantage of 3D printing technology that other technologies cannot compare. Products from 3D printed plastic can completely guarantee the quality, but to be active in the work, it is necessary to have knowledge of 3D rendering.

  • In the electronics industry:

3D printers have been used to fabricate particularly complex parts from different materials and have opened up a new trend in the industry.

  • In the fashion industry:

There have been shows where models show off costumes that are 100% 3D printed. Custom designed jewelry and apparel manufactured using 3D printing technology have become quite popular around the world. 

  • In the manufacturing industry:

This is the industry that uses 3D printers the most. The main reason why this technology is so widely used in industrial environments is that it allows the production of models with complex shapes, cuts down on scrap, and rapid creation of on-demand test products. Thus, 3D printing opens up the potential of manufacturing cost advantages, process improvements, and product improvements for suppliers in some specific cases.

  • In the auto industry:

People use 3D printing technology to test production of designs, prototyping and manufacturing some special parts and assembly tools. In addition, people have also used 3D printing technology to produce complete cars.

  • In the aerospace industry:

There have been companies applying 3D printing technology in the production of aircraft parts, especially parts with complex shapes. More importantly, it is expected that by sending 3D printers into space, astronauts will be able to manufacture replacement parts themselves when needed. As long as there is a printer and printing materials on hand, when there is any problem in space travel, the astronaut can receive design files from Earth and directly print out the designs. replacement parts in space.

  • In the defense industry:

The defense industry uses 3D printing for special and cost-effective manufacturing purposes. Currently, metal 3D printing machines used to produce guns have been born.

  • In the food industry:

Many companies specializing in the application of 3D printing technology in food have been established. People can design dishes such as chocolate or confectionery into beautiful and sophisticated shapes, and then use food ingredients in liquid or powder form to print the food according to the shapes that have been established. design.

  • In medical:

3D printing technology has been applied to produce biological models (anatomical models of human body parts such as bones, teeth, prosthetic ears, etc.). The technology is also used to support trials of new medical methods and technologies, enhance medical research, and teach and train medical staff. In particular, with Bioprinting (3D printing biological tissues), it is also expected to be able to produce human body parts for the replacement and transplantation of damaged organs (such as skin grafts, kidney transplant, heart transplant, etc.)
