3D printing is a branch under additive manufacturing, where converting the design to manufacturing model is done. Breaking the boundaries of traditional manufacturing process of complex structures, 3D printing has helped the industrial designers by enabling the design components based on functionality. The researchers are extending their research in identifying the new technologies in 3D printing to their full potential with respect to materials and process specialization for industrial end users. This paper provides information on various industry-based 3D printing technologies and also presents a comparison of them.

 
 

3D printing has become a viable route in manufacturing industrial parts with the use of high performance metals and polymers, and a parallel competitor to traditional manufacturing, as 3D printing has become easier to manufacture and use. This technology enables the user even to assemble the parts. Through valid design for assembly, 3D printing can print or make prototypes, including the mechanisms. In continuation, a new terminology came into existence as Design for Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) for making real-time prototypes or functional parts out of 3D printing with valid design.
