3D technology has been a game-changer in many ways. Several industries, including healthcare, automobile, aerospace, defense, manufacturing, and entertainment, have been experiencing impactful production and business transformations within crucial areas of their business by leveraging 3D technology.
Many experts hail 3D technology as a catalyst for the next industrial revolution. Companies are experimenting with 3D printed products such as automobile parts, micro-batteries, and even prosthetic limbs. In fact, healthcare is one field that is making the most of 3D printing, from 3D printing artificial human-sized bones, cartilage, and muscle to carrying out complex surgeries with the help of 3D models. Further, 3D imaging technology has also caught the imagination of manufacturers, delivering high accuracy and precision at every stage of the manufacturing process, thus helping save time and raw materials. With 3D imaging, designers have in their possession a tool that provides an intuitive understanding of the feasibility of any product right at the initial stages. In the consumer sector, the increasing popularity of 3D cinema and 3D televisions has made it the second-highest revenue-generating segment in the entertainment industry.
With a comprehensive understanding of these new developments, StartupCity has compiled a list of 15 most promising 3D tech startups that provide innovative solutions for a variety of use cases.
