With the continuous developing of 3D printing technology, it has been well applied in different fields. 3D printing has changed the characteristics of the traditional printing industry, making our printing from a flat two-dimensional model to a three-dimensional model. Therefore, we are shocked by the outcome that 3D printing brings to us. We can print out our own personal model and give it to friends and relatives. We can also print large buildings in a reduced scale. In the field of biological manufacturing, we can also print stem cells…Various 3D printers, 3D printed models, 3D printing technology, etc. All these related to 3D printing seem to give us a taste of the arrival of a new technological revolution. So, what amazing effects has 3D printing brought to our lives? Today we will come to all those 3D printing works that can be called the best in the world.

The smallest 3D printer in the world: The smallest 3D printer in the world is called XEOS. It was created by German industrial designer Stefan Reichert. Its length, width, and height are 47cm, 25cm, and 43cm, making it the smallest 3D printer in the world.
The world’s first 3D printed sports car: Divergent Microfactories (DM) from San Francisco, USA has launched the world’s first 3D printed super sports car “Blade”. The vehicle weighs only 1,400 pounds (approximately 0.64 tons), and it only takes two seconds to accelerate from a standstill to 60 miles (96 kilometers) per hour, making it easy to rank among the top supercars.
The world’s first 3D printed aircraft: “SULSA” is a small unmanned aircraft manufactured using a 3D printer, with a wingspan of 2 meters and a top speed of 100 miles per hour. It is also equipped with a micro-autopilot system that can be used for cruising. This is the world’s first “3D printed” aircraft, which has been successfully tested recently.
The smallest 3D printed Rubik’s Cube in the world: This miniature 3D printed Rubik’s Cube comes from the hands of Russian artist Gregoryev. It can be called the smallest Rubik’s Cube in the world. The side length of this Rubik’s cube is only 1 cm, breaking the world record of 1.2 cm .
The world’s first 3D printed shoe: This pair of 3D printed Nike shoes is named Vapor Laser Talon Boot (steam laser claw), and the entire sole is manufactured using 3D printing technology. Not only does it look dazzling in appearance, the official said the running shoes also have excellent performance, which can enhance the sprint ability of football players in the first 40 meters.
The world’s first 3D printed car: Urbee 2 is the world’s first car made entirely using 3D printing technology. The car is equipped with three wheels, power is 7 horsepower (5kW), rear-wheel drive, and Urbee 2’s electric drive mode The mileage can reach 64 kilometers.
The world’s first 3D printed office building: According to a report on the Russian Radio Today website on June 30, Dubai announced that it will build the world’s first 3D printed office building. The planned 3D printing office building is a single-story building with an area of approximately 2,000 square feet (about 185 square meters). It will be printed layer by layer by a 20-foot (about 6 meters) printer, and the interior of the office building will also be 3D printed.
The world’s first 3D printed electric car: Strati is the world’s first 3D printed two-person electric car, and the first prototype of Local Motors’ many car-building plans. Although Strati’s design is very rough, the dashboard looks like it is glued layer by layer with a caulking gun, but this car is likely to replace motorcycles as people’s daily means of transportation.
The world’s first 3D printed bicycle: the world’s first 3D printed titanium bicycle solid, manufactured by INDUSTRY in cooperation with the famous bicycle manufacturer Ti Cycles, using 3D printing technology. Solid looks very eye-catching and its functions are also very practical. It has a built-in GPS module, a hydraulic brake, and a carbon belt drive design, which can use the energy generated by the user during riding to generate electricity without additional power.
The world’s first 3D printed motorcycle: At 2015 California RAPID exhibition, the world’s first fully functional 3D printed motorcycle appeared. Except for the engine, various electronic devices, conveyor belts, braking system and some bolts, all other parts of this motorcycle are printed with ABS plastic, and it can carry the weight of two adult riders.
The world’s first 3D printed rifle: Firearms enthusiast “HaveBlue” published the documentation of its 3D printed rifle (A.22 rifle) in its blog in 2015 (via AR15 forum), which details the printing experience and test results , Became the first example of successfully printing out a 3D rifle and testing.
The world’s first 3D printed rocket: A New Zealand private aerospace company named Rocket Lab has developed the world’s first 3D printed battery-powered rocket: Electron! It can be called a major advancement in the history of human rocket technology development. Almost all the main components of the Rutherford engine on which it rides are made by 3D printing.
