3D Printing provides a significant boost for businesses in almost all types of industries in the market. There are plenty of applications where 3D printers can be useful, for example, in manufacturing and engineering where it can be used for rapid prototyping and on-demand production of tools, jigs, fixtures and even machine spare parts. In education where it can be used for learning, research and even housed inside a Fablab. Healthcare and dental, jewelry, architecture, aerospace, businesses and many more. Used in these industries, 3D printers help by reducing cost and lessen the lead time which leads to a significant...

A local mining company in the Philippines was fascinated with the possibilities they can achieve with 3D printing. Having a greater look at the whole area can give them a better perspective to record the details and identify how will they execute their plan by examining the properties of rocks and deposits to find associated materials, the size of the deposit, and the potential for access. Surveyors in the mining industry plays an important role since they provide information to all the other mining disciplines. They are responsible for the accurate measurement of the areas and volumes mined, plus the...
