Timeline of 3D Printing Design Milestones

  • Chapter

Abstract

To bring a clearer understanding of the many design achievements that have occurred in the world of 3D printing, this appendix presents a timeline of design milestones. This should not be regarded as a conclusive list; many more applications for 3D printing are being born daily, and featuring every 3D-printed, first-time accomplishment would be beyond the scope of this book. Nor is this timeline a history of the 3D printing process. Rather, the chronology lists objects grown from the 3D printing process for the first time (such as the world’s first 3D-printed shoe or the first 3D-printed guitar, just to name a few examples). For more history on the evolution of the 3D printing process, Joan Horvath’s Mastering 3D Printing is highly recommended.
