Today’s World is moving towards 3D like they are taking more interest to watch a movie in 3D, 3D-Games etc. But 3D printing was started in 220 AD. At that time “Woodblock printing” was famous and from 1981 3D printing came in the scenario, and nowadays 3D printing has been used in many field or sectors for their own reasons. Those Sectors are:
3D printing is using in many applications like including architecture, construction (AEC), industrial design, automotive, aerospace, military, engineering, dental and medical industries, biotech (human tissue replacement), fashion, footwear, jewelry, eyewear, education, geographic information systems, food, and many other fields.
Medical applications for 3-D printing are expanding rapidly and are expected to revolutionize health care. Medical uses for 3-D printing can be divided into various categories, including tissue and organ fabrication; creation of customized prosthetics, implants, and anatomical models and pharmaceutical research.

In the industry sector, 3D printing is used for different purpose like art and jeweler, automotive, apparel. Construction.
A. Art and Jeweler
3D printing used to manufacture molds for making jewelry, and even the jewelry itself. 3D printing becoming popular in the customizable gifts industry, with products such as personalized models of art and dolls in many shapes: in metal or plastic, or as consumable art, such as 3D printed chocolate.
3D printing is used to make spare parts for the planes, Car, Bike and other automobile technology which they are planning to introduce in the market.
In apparel 3D printing is used as showcases like any costumes or clothes, shoes, watch etc. They will take the help of 3D printing to show the customer for their outfits.
3D printing is a core method of fabricating building or construction components. 3D printing at a construction scale will have a wide variety of applications within the private, commercial, industrial and public sectors. Potential advantages of these technologies include faster construction, lower labor costs, increased complexity and/or accuracy, greater integration of function and less waste produced.
In Sociocultural 3D printing is uses like 3D Selfies, Communication, Educational and Research, Cultural Heritage etc.
A. 3D Selfies
In 3D printing companies convert 3D selfie models from 2D pictures of customers. These models are also known as 3D portraits, 3D figurines or mini-me figurines.
3D printing used in Commercial Advertisement or another medium of communication like music, hoarding, Invitation etc.
C. Educational and Research
3D printing also helps a student to create their practical projects of Physics, Mathematics, Science, and research also. Future applications for 3D printing might include creating open-source scientific equipment.
D. Cultural Heritage
3D printing help to create a missing place of historical heritage. You can see the cultural heritage in many museums of the different country.
