William Sturgeon, an official of the 3D Systems, said, “The original components were prototyped in SLA, Stereolithography, using the ProX800 and ProX950. And then they were cast and formed as the exist model you see here.”

Most 3D printers are used for building prototypes for the manufacturing industries such as engineering and automotive, but with the advancement of the digital technology, now it’s applications are in many varieties.

A exhibitor said, “So, we actually used a material called TPU (Thermo Poly Urethane). It’s actually flexible, and still has that interlocking part ability because it’s 3D printing technology. but if you touch it you can feel that it’s actually kind of spring.
