screen printing Do you know that when you talk about 3D screen printing t-shirts, this 3D printing is a very wide term? The most commonly used technology in 3D screen printing processes is selective laser sintering (SLS). This technology uses a high power laser to fuse small particles of plastic, metal, ceramic or glass powders into a mass that has the desired three dimensional shape. The laser selectively fuses the powdered material by scanning the cross-sections (or layers) generated by the 3D modelling program on the surface of a powder bed. After each cross-section is scanned, the powder bed is lowered by one layer thickness. Then a new layer of material is applied on top and the process is repeated until the object is completed.All untouched powder remains as it is and becomes a support structure for the object. All unused powder can be used for the next print. SLS was developed and patented by Dr. Carl Deckard at the University of Texas in the mid-1980s. Then we have directed energy deposition. This process is mostly used in the high-tech metal industry and in rapid manufacturing applications. The 3D printing apparatus is usually attached to a multi-axis robotic arm and consists of a nozzle that deposits metal powder or wire on a surface and an energy source (laser, electron beam or plasma arc) that melts it, forming a solid object And screen printing t-shirts

Some other examples and applications of 3D printinginclude rapid prototyping, architectural scale models, healthcare (3D printed prosthetics and 3D printing with human tissue) and entertainment (e.g. movie props).Other examples of 3D printing would include reconstructing fossils in palaeontology, replicating ancient artefacts in archaeology, reconstructing bones and body parts in forensic pathology and reconstructing heavily damaged evidence acquired from crime scene investigations.The worldwide 3D printing industry is expected to grow further. As it evolves, 3D printing technology is destined to transform almost every major industry and change the way we live, work, and play in the future And screen printing t-shirts.

For instance, the outlook for medical use of 3D printing is evolving at an extremely rapid pace as specialists are beginning to utilize 3D printing in more advanced ways. Patients around the world are experiencing improved quality of care through 3D printed implants and prosthetics never before seen. Also, as of the early two-thousands 3D printing technology has been studied by biotech firms and academia for possible use in tissue engineering applications where organs and body parts are built using inkjet techniques. Layers of living cells are deposited onto a gel medium and slowly built up to form three dimensional structures.
